    scrappy trip around the world, or make half-square triangles out of them (the kind where you sew and then cut). Here is one, but there are other ways to set them together. Basically any Log Cabin set, you can use for HST's.

    I made a wonderful Morningstar quilt with my 5" blocks. Have you seen the books by Pat Speth (just one of many nickle quilt books) in which she uses 5" blocks? They are truly fine and many patterns use scrappy blocks. Have fun. There is a world out there of 5" block patterns!

    Oh... do a get any of the Nickel Quilt books by Pat Speth. I think there is a total of three in the series. They are filled with nothing but designs specifically for 5 inch squares ( hense the name "Nickel" quilts). They are my go to books for scrap quilts.
    I have two of the three and highly recommend them for the scrapper !

    I also suggest the Nickle quilt books. Usually you can find them in your library. I know I have looked through one book at my library, and I have loved what I have seen. I just need to get busy on things.

    I made a Disappearing 9 Patch with 5" charms, plus a few more.
