Fabric Scrap Ideas

Many thanks to all of you who are still hanging in there with me as I try to get back onto a regular posting schedule.  The lack of internet connectivity is still causing a bit of a problem, but I’m hoping it will be taken care of soon.

In the meantime, I need to ask for your help.

My mother-in-law came up for a visit again this weekend.  We had a great time yard sale-ing and thrift store treasure hunting on Saturday morning, and then new shoe shopping for me that afternoon.  Catti-brie has decided, at one year-old, that shoe chewing is a great idea.  I discovered and disposed of three pairs of ruined shoes when I was cleaning out  my closet last week.  The little stinker.

At any rate, that evening, my mother-in-law went out to her car and retrieved a particularly good yard sale find that she had purchased a few weeks ago.  She walked in with a stack of fabric sample books.

Fabric Sample Books

These books are filled with multi-purpose fabric samples in all types of blends and textures.  I was so excited as I flipped through each book, studying the different patterns and color combinations.  My husband pointed out that these fabric samples, which are all identically cut, would be easy to piece into a quilt of some sort.

But, other than that, what can I do with all of these?

I would love any project ideas that you may have for these little rectangles.  They are all fastened together into a book, but the usable portion that is not stapled or altered measures approximately 8.25 x 5.75.

Thoughts?
