    Four patches to set with solids to make a nine patch block is what I'd do.
    I love my life!

    I would first get all like colors together. You could do a "Granny Squares" pattern. I'm originally from Ft. Wayne and have a lot of family there. Stay warm.

    Look at "Chiclets" or "Charming Additions" patterns. Both are free on the net. They call for 2.5 but 2 would work fine.

    Bonnie Hunter is using 2 1/2 inch squares as her leader and ender project this year. She is making Spilt 9 Patch blocks and showed a picture this week on her site http://quiltville.blogspot.ca Her squares finish at 6 inches and you can make cool designs with them. Starting with 2 inch blocks will make a smaller block but I bet there would make for cool design possibilities.

    Well, I am busy having lots of fun with English Paper Piecing. I have been cutting out 2 inch squares all morning for use with the hexagons I'm using. I have been cutting up a huge 'layer cake of beautiful solid colors' but am also going to begin adding all my scraps from other projects.
    I am really enjoying the EPP because it can be done while watching TV, while at the beach, on a plane, listening to audiobooks, etc., etc! They go fast once you get the hang, and you can do dozens at a sitting, great way to do two things at once!

    I agree with four patches. Add in some half square triangles, charm squares and you'll have a quilt top in no time!

    Do you have a design wall? That would be a big help.
