From some 2.5 inch strips you can cut some approximately 22 inch pieces and end up with eight 8 inch kaleidoscope blocks and one leftover kaleidoscope block (upper right) ...
...and with the other 18 inches of the 2.5 inch strip (plus white strips) you will end up with some 6 inch Cracker blocks.
With some other 2.5 inch bits and pieces I combined with some neutral scraps and made some HSTs that I then made into 8 inch Depression blocks.
I made a few more lozenges from 2.5 x 5 inch pieces.
And finally, from 2.5 inch scraps...I made some 6 inch Twinkler blocks and some miscellaneous 4 inch blocks that will probably be made into some donation quilts at year end.
Use them.. Then show us what you've made each ScrapHappy Saturday
