    These are scraps leftover from my "Uncle Sam's Kaleidoscope" quilt.....
    What would you do with them?

    In case the colors don't show very well, they are red, white and blues. There is one off-white print.

    I would be tempted to use them for leaders and enders, that way you can have a scrappy quilt put together without even thinking about it!

    Very pretty fabrics.

    if you don't want to use them yourself, there are any number of people that would want them and use them.

    rhonda, for one - probably others.

    You have enough there to make a really pretty "scrap" quilt (quotes because there are a lot of the same fabrics there). You can do all sorts of patterns w/ half-square triangles.

    I did the siggie swap and have a lottttt of triangles also. There are quite a few patterns for these. Someone posted (I'm sorry I don't know the page) a bunch of blocks that were made from HST's. What about a Carpenters Wheel?

    Crazy quilt on foundation, so you don't have to try to match tiny points.

    Start putting them together as HST. They would make a great border!
