    I sent some pics the other day of these 2 1/2 in squares, but it was so small. I had asked for suggestions on a pattern to do with them. Hopefully the pic is bigger and I can get more responses on what to do with them. I probably have enough to make a lap quilt. thanks

    I like it also. I would put narrow black sashing around the blocks.

    Oh, so many beautiful scraps! I like the idea of black sashing around the blocks! Black always seems to make the colors pop! Please show us when you are done.

    Or you could alternate them with plain blocks.

    Lucky you! These are lovely flower scraps, and will make a really pretty quilt. Love that small size too...

    Just for fun, why don't you try a flower print w/ dark background for the sashing....

    Definitely narrow black sashing would really set off those very pretty blocks. Love, love, love all those florals/fabrics.

    Whatever you do with these blocks, they will make a beautiful quilt.

    I did a quilt using small squares,then I used a small seam binding all around the squares. I gave it to my mother.
