It's a Flimsy! Bitcoins

 Bitcoins
It's a flimsy!
84 x 84

It can be oriented this way...
 ...or that way. 
 I started it in November 2017 as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project to use...
 ...1.5 inch scraps which I cut into 2.5 inch pieces.   Later I also used 2.5 inch scraps cut into 1.5 inch pieces. 
I first sewed 1.5 x 2.5 inch colored pieces to 1.5 x 2.5 inch neutral pieces to make a 2.5 inch square unit. I played around with them for awhile and then decided to join units of the same color into blocks of 3 columns x 7 rows.   I first called the blocks Whatchamacallits until someone else started making them and called them Bitcoins which is a more suitable and very clever name I think. 

Now to find a backing and get it quilted.

And to think that these are scraps that most people just toss out. Wonderful scrap quilt and many hours of happy piecing.

I have to admit I like your "whatchamacallit" name better;). Whatever you call it, it's a terrific collection of color!

Scraps that small just shimmer in large groups! Fun rainbow piece, Cathy!

This looks fabulous! I got the feeling that if I stared at it long enough, I would be able to make out some letters and words!
