A few months ago, my aunt gave me a bag of cotton fabric scraps from projects she'd been working on. Much to my surprise, the colors were right up my alley! Lots of purples, greens, pinks, blues... a bright and pretty bunch. The scraps were a variety of sizes, most between a quarter and half a yard. They've been sitting around until I could get to them. This past weekend, I spent maybe eight or nine hours just cutting away! (My back was screaming by the end.) And there's still a lot more left.
I ended up with scraps of varying sizes, but I was shooting for a bunch of 4-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangles so that I could make some brick quilts.
Besides a standard brick/subway tile pattern, does anyone know of any other patterns that use a lot of this particular size?
