    Don't judge the individual blocks. Instead, wait until you can lay out all the "strays" and see how well they play with each other. If you pick a color from the blocks that you really like and use it as sashing, you may be surprised how the quilt will sing.

    Here it is:)
    I host a "scrap surprise" every spring for a couple of the girls I quilt with. This is one of them, it is the one peeking out LOL. I think the pattern is Puss in the Corner.
