Have you ever cut up your leftovers into squares and strips and saved them ala Bonnie Hunter style? I used to, and over the years gave away everything I had saved because I didn't use them after I did all that organizing. So, when we started prepping to make quilts at church -- there's a few quilters and about 10 non-quilters, so we had to teach the non-quilters what to do - I started cutting squares and strips again. Well, that's all well and good, but again, I wasn't using the 2-1/2" squares or anything else. So the cubes are full of scraps and cut squares and strips.
I pulled a stack of 2-1/2" squares and started making 2-patches. They will become 4 patches and maybe eventually, I'll add them to the 16-patch blocks I've had in the stash for years now and may become a quilt eventually!
I'm going to work with one cube at a time now to deal with leftovers and scraps as I go, and hopefully it'll all be organized eventually and all become quilts for the homeless.
Until next time....blessings.
