    That's what I would make if I had a bunch of squares!

    Thank you so much for suggesting this for I am trying to sew up all my stash and was running short on ideas. I copied the directions that were so nice and easy to follow.

    I think I'd try for the landscape it if were me and that many squares. May take time but I think it would be worth it.
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    I have a scrappy pattern called "Triple Irish Chain". It is so cool. 16 squares make up one square. The next square would have 3 scrappy squares at each corner with white in the center. The white parts are cut in rectangles to make up that square. Didn't search for the pattern to see if it's out there. Found it an quite old quilt mag. Hope to make it this year. It's keeps calling me. I did make up one of each of the squares, so there's a start.

    I have enough squares to make a few quilts. I have started using the 31/2 squares to make a bow tie quilt. There were lots of blue: enough for the background. That will take care of a lot of them. Thanks again for the great suggestions.

    I've made two of these quilts and was not happy with how stiff they ended up being. I'd probably only use this method for wallhangings in the future.
