Drowning in Scraps

Scraps - they multiply when I'm sleeping.

After I cut for a project, I always have leftover pieces.  After collecting a small basket full, or deciding it's time for a good cleaning, I cut the scraps into a variety of sizes for future use.  About a month ago I found that the 2" square container was filled.  At first I thought I would just sew these squares together in a classic patchwork pattern.  The piecing evolved into 16 square patches. I remembered making the Scrap Jar Star block in a bee and thought this would be a great way to use these scraps.  The pattern also called for 3 1/2" square triangles.  I had plenty of 4" and 4 1/2" squares to turn into HSTs.
