I didn't mark, or take much care of size, they all came out about the same. After I cut them off, pressed them open, I played around with them and finally decided to do little pinwheels.Really, I didn't spend much energy trying to be exact and the blocks looked ragged but I knew they met in the center. A quick trim took care of the uneven edges, and I got to have fun instead of worrying.
So I didn't fuss the sewing, instead just placed them together with the angles meeting and sewed about an 8th inch seam, making sure they met in the centers. Then I trimmed all four sides down to the 2" block.
Now what... hmmm.... well I could do a border of them. What in the center???
I have a drawer of misfits, so I peered inside to find the little stamp Deb Gabel gave me once. She and I were in an art quilt group together for a few years and she was throwing this away. Well, you know me!
"could I have it?" Laughing, she said, sure.
I grew up in Tampa, and love flamingos, and love to use scraps! This should finish about 9" X 12" and hang in a little space that needs some color!
No piece left behind...
