I bought these at an antique store but I dont know what to do with them. The tag says Tuilp Quilt Sqare Circa 40's. I dunno. They are so pretty. The pic shows 2. They are just stacked up. Thanks!

Anyone wanna help a good cause and buy a sonography class cookbook so I can go to a seminar in September? They are $15 alone, and $20 with handmade potholders. PM me!

I think they are to be appliqued onto your fabric.  If you only have a few they might be cool to add to a bag or embelish pillow cases, or if you have alot, get working, we want to see your finished quilt!

I agree that they are probably appliques someone was making to put on a quilt.

They are pretty big. They are like 9-10 inches across and maybe 7 inches tall.

I'm putting my two cents worth in a little late, but if you go to this site

http://www.americasantiques.biz/499Quilts.htm

and scroll down to the Tulip Applique Antique quilt it might be an idea of what you could do with the pieces. They look like a lot of fun. If you've already done something with them we'd love to see. Please post a picture.
