This week I worked with my 2.5 inch scraps.
First thing I usually do is look for four 2.5 pieces that are long enough to cut four links that will look good together for my Interlocking Chain blocks. If I don't I will cut from my scrap chunks.
Sprouts, Happy Blocks, Depression Blocks
The next thing I do is see if there are any novelty pieces and, if so, I cut a 2.5 square and surround it with 1.5 inch scraps to make little 4.5 I Spy Happy Blocks.
Then I cut enough squares for a few Sprouts. After that I match up the RSC color with a neutral 2.5 scrap and cut some HSTs with an EZ Angle ruler. I usually remember that I need 16 HSTs for each Depression Block and 4 for each Sprout and make just enough HSTs but if the mood strikes I make extra HSTs and then sew them up into little 4 inch blocks like pinwheels or broken dishes. The mood didn't strike this time.
And finally I match up neutrals again with the RSC color of the month and make Pyramid Pieces following a tutorial at the Molly Flanders blog.
