Blogtober Day 3 - Patchwork Pieces

I bought three beautiful pieces of hand-stitched vintage patchwork from Etsy (Vintage Gatherings ~ recently but since then, I haven't been able to decide what to do with them.

Initially, I thought I would frame them, but despite considerable scouring in the op-shops, I couldn't find frames that were a) big enough or b) nice enough.

At the moment, I am thinking of stitching them onto a rather dull polar fleece blanket which is, nonetheless, a lovely shade of blue.

What do you think? All suggestions most welcome.

I discovered this lovely singer, Emma Louise, on my cyber ramblings this morning.

Maybe stitch it on single-coloured cushions?

Hi Feronia (what an amazing name!). I'm here via Blogtober and just wanted to say I'm really enjoying your posts so am following along. I think I might try something unexpected with the pieces, maybe make a notebook cover with it?
