I just love this square. He's all alone. Any ideas?

  1. It's beautiful. Maybe a pillow or a small wallhanging one that you could frame?

  2. I like Sue's suggestions but you could also do a smaller medallion quilt. Isn't it a lively block?!

  3. I think whatever you do it will be beautiful. You could just quilt it and then frame it.

  4. I love the look of it, cheerful and free-spirited. I would maybe put Gwen Marston-style applique borders on it - a different pattern on each side. I love her applique quilts, they are just like this !

  6. I would do pieced borders to make it like a medallion quilt.

  10. It would make a great wall hanging with a pieced border in red. I've been reading back on your blog and was delighted to see your trapunto work which is gorgeous. Maybe you would consider a post on how you tackle that?

  11. A small medallion quilt would be wonderful. The block could stand alone in a pillow or framed too.
