This is what I have done with the fabric samples so far.
This piece was cut up then stitched together. After sandwiching with some thin wadding and backing fabric I quilted them together with a decorative machine stitch.
For the boat I outlined with freehand machine embroidery, then stitched it to a sketchbook page which I had torn out. I reattached the page with hand stitches.
Another boat also outlined with machine embroidery.
I used a red thread for the freehand machine embroidery to quilt the three layers together.
This one is my favourite so far.
I have one large piece of fabric that I've not done anything with yet
