Hi all,
I made this simple patchwork piece last year, but now I'm not sure what to do with it.  It was my first attempt at patch work and I didn't put enough time and concentration into it apparently as the squares don't line up that well and I didn't really plan the pattern properly.  However, I do love the colours and material swatches so I'd like to do something with it now, to make it into a finished something or other.  Does anyone have any ideas?  Thanks

How big is it?  It could be a lovely lap quilt, if it's big enough.  Or you could make a big cushion with it.

It looks lovely.  I really like the color combination.

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

The colours are lovely so it would make a nice cushion.  If any mismatched seams (not that I can see any!) are really bugging you, then some toning, well-placed buttons always look good.

How about finishing it off and using it as a table topper?

You could make it into a tote bag really easily or a case for a laptop/ipad. I really like making bags so tend to go that direction whenever I see any fabric Cheesy

It is lovely so like the others said a cushion would be great!!
