They were a lot of strings left even after making the string quilt. Now what to do with them? I grabbed a few 1 1/2'' odds and ends and sewed them together in pairs. Trimmed them to 5 1/2'' just because they were the shortest size pieces. I then added a 1 1/2'' by 5 1/2'' white piece between two strip sets. The blocks are 5 1/2'' square. I threw some of them up on my design wall.

Then I moved on to the bits and pieces of the 2 1/2'' strips and cut them into 2 1/2'' squares. I am making these into 16 patch blocks using them as leader and enders.

There you have my scrap story. Are my strings all gone. NO!!! I don't believe they will ever be all gone but they are more manageable now.
