    Or - if you really want to know what to do with them - you could just send them to me and forget about them. Ha

There are as few as a single square to some that have about 10 or 12 matching squares.
    When anybody asks me what to do with Charm Squares etc. I reply with one one D9P http://quiltsatcs.blogspot.co.uk/200...-tutorial.html

    Your sister sounds like mine!

    Arkansas Crossroads. There's one version on Bonnie Hunter's site http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/...h-of-july.html with instructions, and you can use any combination of scrappy squares in this quilt as long as your 4 patches have light and dark contrast and you pick one unifying fabric for the larger squares (the ones that are white in the Quiltville version). Do a Google image search for Arkansas Crossroads quilts to see many examples.
    We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
