You can never have too many scraps

May I suggest a way to use them.
This picture is a good example. Made from scraps and
sewn on foundation paper. The quilt is made of 8” blocks sewn on the diagonal. The arrangement is 5 blocks across and 6 down, a good contrast border, and a piano key outer border.
Normal sewing supplies plus foundation paper is all that is needed.
