I recently purchased 200 5" pre cut fabric squares but am not sure what to quilt them into. I know I don't want to make a plain square block quilt but being a newbie to quilting I'm really not sure of what to do with them other then that.:shock: Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Are they all the same color? You could add some other fabrics to what you have and make a varitey of blocks depending on who it's for and how big you want it. I guess we need more info.

Triangle, rectangles,squares can all be cut from 5inch squares, so there are lots of possibilities.

Sorry lol here is a picture of the 5 patches colour and patterns(didn't even think of taking a picture)The first colour is like a greyish teal blue then the flower pattern the middle is striped teal, taupe, burgandy and a lighter pink then a taupe square and a burgandy one. the teal and the taupe have a wavy pattern on them. As for the quilt being for someone I'm not sure yet maybe a get well gift for my mom when she goes in for knee surgery. Thanks so much for you help :)

Check out the book Nickle Quilts - alot of good patterns for 5" squares; there's also a Nickles II - I don't think as good as the first one.
