the lowly square

I have a bunch of 3 1/2 inch squares that I need to 
use up
and a lot of them are old fashioned prints like these
so I pulled a loose "floral" theme
and sewed them 2x2   4x4   8x8

into strips like this

and then laid them out to see how she looked
this may be a lap quilt for me
I may make it 16 blocks wide  
48 ish wide sounds about right

so I may need to cut up some more scraps that are in 
this category to finish this top
are you playing in your scraps?

Oh I love those "old-fashioned" prints--I have a box that I am uh (hoarding?) saving for a special lap quilt for myself too. My present one is getting pretty worn...hugs, Julierose

Nice looking scraps. I use small florals for my FGV blocks, when I have them :) said...

No scraps today is a t shirt type of day.
