With it, you can frame a single block or insert multiple of them into a bigger quilt or any other project you are working on. It would be cute for a pillow, a purse, a pot holder, or even a dress. Have fun with your color and pattern choices to make it personal and unique for you. The size of this block is 5"x8". You can easily reduce or enlarge the size by printing at a different scale.
