Part of my stress reliever project for retreat was just sewing 4 patches out of shirts. I started with 2 1/2 inch strips in dark and light and sewed a bunch whenever I needed to destress in between sea swept.
I have one pattern that uses these as frames around a center block. I needed 32 for the sides and a larger set for the top and bottom. I did get the 32 sewn. I have a few ready for the rest of the blocks.
My friends like to drop their scraps off at my table. I like just about anything. Here was my little pile.
