Find fabric bits that you love, and display them stretched in embroidery hoops, available at any craft/sewing store.  More interesting shapes than the usual squares. 

I have that exact type of thing going on in three different spots in my house. Makes good use of my giant vintage linens stash. I thrifted my hoops for about 50 cents each! I got a much wider variety of sizes that way than what was available at craft stores and for much cheaper.
