Maybe you could applique them on the border whole and not cut them. I agree, seems like they’d ravel if you cut into them. Or use them some way to do a wall hanging, or roll them so the sock design...

I prob’ly wouldn’t use anything but a layer of flannel and a layer of denim. Be sure you prewash the flannel cause it shrinks. And do an X on the blocks to stabilize your fabrics. Good luck. I love...
