Fabric Remnants

I recently purchased several yards of fabric for a $1 per pattern. Flea market score! These pieces are large enough for several throw pillows or maybe to be part of the quilt I will one day conquer.  The polka dot circly one looks like I could almost doodle that myself! And maybe I shall, that would be a fun blanket, to have different colors of this circle/dot pattern...The floral I had to have because of the colors: blue, yellow & red. It's a challenge, I think, to get these colors to work well together without being a circus or preschool room.  And the almost grandma style = win.
There are tons and tons of ideas out in webspace for what to do with leftover fabric. Here's a few that I thought were stellar.
