Crazy Nine-Patch. . . Now What?

I've been wanting to try the crazy block method that Allsorts lists as a tutorial on her blog. Since I had 10" blocks of Hello Betty left from the quilt I made, I thought they would be the perfect try at this. They are not perfect, but I like them. Another time I would definitely heed the suggestion to have all different solids/prints. I like that doubles appear on some blocks, but it made for some confusion as I pieced them together.

What should I do with them? Table Runner? Set of Placemats? Baby Quilt? Picnic Blanket? And how should they go together. . . butt them next to one another for a true crazy quilt and give them a big border? Sash them to show off each little crazy piece? Hmm. . .
Please, let me know if you try. I'd love to see how your blocks come out and what you make with them?

Love those! I think I would sash them, not sure what to make, though.

I agree with the retro look - got any retro decor in your house? Look at your rooms and see then maybe it will help you decide what to do with them...maybe :)

Good Luck!
