Back to the '60's!

Whilst cleaning up last week I rediscovered these vintage chenille squares lurking at the back of the meat safe.
Gorgeous squares...waiting to be made into something...I am thinking a retro comforter...soft, fluffy & oh so '60's. As a little girl I had a very beautiful lemon chenille bedspread...groovy!
Any ideas?

OH no...I had a chenille bedspread when I was little too, and I loved it. As for your question of "Any Ideas?"....I have one great idea, send them to me :)
Seriously, I would just make a patchwork of them and use it as a throw when watching a movie or something....or send them to me LOL

What a lovely collection you have there. Ideas....I think keep it simple and let the fabric be the feature. It will be so nice and soft to snuggle under.

My chenille bedspread was pink and beautiful. Unfortunately my sister developed a lot of allergies and the bedspread had to be replaced with one that could be washed more frequently.
I think your hidden stash would make a lovely warm snuggly quilt.

They say if you hold onto something long enough it becomes fashionable again!!!

They would make a perfect snuggle rug!
I had an orange chenille bedspread and my parents had a purple one to match their purple carpet LOL - very 70's!
