I played with them at home too, trying to get that perfect mix of colors. Eventually I had a class on using the squares we had been cutting, and making a colorwash quilt. It was a fun experience, and this is one that I ended up making using that technique.
I made several smallish quilts, but used very little of my cut stash. They have been in the back of my mind for a long time, and I had an idea on using them awhile back and finally got around to starting it last spring. The quilt at the top of the page is the result. As you can see, I added gray/blacks to the colorized squares for the quilt blocks. I tried a few different ways to add them in and finally settled on one. It's easy to do and you can use up lots of 2.5" squares!
Since I'm not back teaching classes yet, I thought it would be fun to host an online sewalong making these scrappy blocks out of our stash. I will be posting more info about this sewalong soon, so stay tuned!
