Default Don't leave your 2 1/2 inch squares unchaperoned!

A few years ago, I cut up all my scraps into 2 1/2 inch squares for a quilt pattern I had. Fast forward a few years. I have made 2 full size quilts, several table runners, tote bags, and just this past week, I have sewed 1000 of those little buggers together. I have barely made a dent in my collection. I think they are reproducing when I'm not looking. So if you have a collection, keep an eye on them.

Very funny! I think it's called a charm quilt where no 2 squares are the same - do you do that? I don't know if I'll ever have enough stash for that!

Maybe they do if you cut them into squares? LOL

I guess it's better that squares do that rather than uncut scraps--saves you the work of cutting more!

Cool

I agree, just like rabbits but then you have more squares to sew !!! I would rather have my fabric producing MORE than playing hide and go seek !!
