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!
