    Do you have a little square of fabric?

    Or two or more? Much more?

    Looks like a fun slice and dice project -- thanks for sharing! I'm currently working with a box of precut squares that was given to me, this would be a good option for the ones I consider boring... Love the staggered setting with the different number of subunits in them. Adds a lot of interest.

    You have showed us a very, very pretty quilt. OH, and I love it and the way to make it, using all of our ugly or pretty squares that are left-overs.

    Thanks for sharing!
    Looks easy and fun and definitely a way to get rid of those squares and create something pretty!

    How fun and clever this is! I must try it. I've been about to give up on how to make my 2.5" squares something other than humdrum or predictable when sewn together.

    I did that with 5" squares, came out cute, but watch all those bias edges.

    Well done! Reminds all of us that the simplest things can still be the most beautiful quilts.
