those aren't squares, gasp! decided to deviate from squares for a quick sec . . . still using up all of my scrap fabric that was originally cut up into 2.5" strips, but for a change of pace, i've split all the 2.5" strips into 1.25" strips +pieces. really liking the scrappy roman stripes they're becoming! each block measures 3.25"x3.25", and since i like my quilts big, i'll need about 1300 blocks.
