    Joy,

    I design raggedy purses and I have used 6 1/2" squares to make purses, I've also used 6 1/2" squares to make raggedy quilts.

    I cut them in half to make rectangles, then used those in I Spy quilts.

    Let's see if I can post a pic:

    I saw a darling baby quilt in the window of a quilt shop using 6 1/2 squares. I liked it so much tha I am working on one now. I used a 6 1/2 in square of a solid and used 1 1/2 in sashing 6 1/2 in long. I have a 1 1/2 in square of another print in the corners. The 6 1/2 in square has stitching in the middle of it using a double thread in the needle. I chose juvenile type things like a duck, dog, cat, train, etc. I will post picture soon. But if you had a random selction of 6 1/2 in squares, you could pull them all together by using a coordinating sashing, and any size you made would look really pretty.

    I got inspired with the Drunkard's Path BOM and chopped some of my charm squares today. I'm going to mix them with "plain" fabric to make a scrappy Drunkard's Path quilt.
