    Advice, Ideas, Input Needed: What to do with these ?!?!?!?!

    IM a scrapper thru and thru.. Im not a quilter who follows patterns and most of my quilts are oopsies.. Ive created what Ive seen in pics and usually add my own lil flair to it .. Or Id have a wild hair and decided to create what i envisioned- never turns out what i originally envisioned.. Sound familiar?!?!?...

    I was doing some mindless sewing and now IM asking for Ideas, Advice, and pictures for what i should do with hundreds of 2x2 four- patch squares... Im pretty visual so if there's a pic of the entire quilt please post.. I dont do well with just a block pic, I guess i just dont see the path its suppose to lead me on.. lol..

    Anyway If you have any ideas or suggestions please comment... I didnt have anything in mind for these lil guys and quite honestly I do not need another UFO hanging around.. My limit is 18 UFO & WIP's !!! lol..


    HELP !!!!!!!!

    What about a random scrappy quilt? Just mix them all up, randomly pick them up and join them together? Or you could border them with plain fabrics of various colours and then join them up? Or how about an Irish chain quilt 4 of these together as one block and then a plain block of the same size etc. Sorry I haven't any pictures. Best wishes.

    You could alternate with plain blocks that are the same size or just sew them together to make 12" blocks and surround them with black to pop the colors.

    I'm working on a bag, then a box of 2" squares that were given to me. I'm making 4 patches right now. After that I square them up since I didn't cut the 2" squares and there is some variation. Then I plan to put a 1" border all the way around in a constant color, finally I will make that block a square in a square(triangles all the way around). These will be scrappy again. I'm thinking when I sew these together I'll get a nice secondary pattern. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Scrappies normally make me dizzy - but - I REALLY like this one!
