Unhappy I am soooooo mad at myself

I had to refigure a throw pattern to make it a queen. I needed to have 60 1/2 sq triangles so I would have to cut 30 squares....not me I cut 60 squares of them not only to one fabric but with 2, any ideas on what to make with the extras, they are 6 7/8 squares. Not only am I upset over that but I could have gotten away with alot less fabric. I could have used that $ towards fabric for another project !!!

I agree with bearisgray. Sew the pieces together like you did with the first quilt. Then lay out the squares in a totally different layout. Have fun with the layout and see what you come up with. You will be getting two quilts that way

I say just keep sewing them together like you are already doing and you will get a second quilt or a backing that is the same as the front.

Maybe you could make some throw pillows or a coordinating wall hanging to go with the quilt.
