I have a bunch of small scrap pieces (about 2" by 4"). They are all flannel and have a baby theme to them. What is a good quilt pattern to use to use them up? I am just a beginner so I don't know of many quilt patterns.

As I have just done for mu round robin center.. I sewed all those little 2x2 squares together for a scrappy look.. I LOVE IT.

No organization and no rules!

You might try laying it out on the floor and seeing if you like it!

I'd just do crumb blocks or just sew them all in strips and then sew the strips. Really no rhyme or reason when it comes to it

Do you mean just cut all the material into 2" squares and then sew them all into strips or big squares?

You could sew them together randomly into strips, and use them for borders or bindings on future projects :) Like a confettie border kinda sorta thing.
