    Your can't go wrong with DP9. Also using them as center of a star block or 4 patch. Others will have more ideas.

    I make french braids with scraps using 3.5 x 6 but you could try 4.5 x 6 and see how that looked.

    The answer to your question depends on your answer to these questions .....
    * what colours/prints etc?
    * how many of each?
    * Though I am a little confused, as you have said squares .... so are they 6x4-1/2" blocks? or some are 6" squares and some are 4-1/2" squares?

    Start ... by sorting them into piles of matching fabrics.
    Count the number of each.
    Then show us a photo of what you have with the numbers! :)

    Do you have rectangles or do you have 2 different sizes of squares?

    There are a lot of possibilities with those pieces.

    You can make an "elongated 9-patch" or "elongated 4-patch" blocks with the rectangles.

    You could sew them in columns or strips.

    You could cut them down into squares - but I would play around a bit with the rectangles first.
