One thing it is easy to cut scraps into is squares. But the same size squares, or different size squares?

Same size squares can be joined into 4-patch blocks

Different size squares (one set twice the size of the other) will make Double 4-Patch blocks.

These Double blocks can make quite interesting quilts when done as light, dark and bright scraps and the blocks rotated. These are just 4 blocks by 4.

What happens if we add alternate 4-patch blocks to these? Again this is 4 blocks by 4.

But if we add extra (smaller) blocks – 7 by 7 say –

Or 12 by 12 even – if those little squares are now 2 inches and the blocks are 8 inches you have a giant quilt of 96 inches square.

More scraps next week!
