These four scrap quilts were all made using the same process of cutting scraps as I finish projects. Sometimes I just cut scraps for the fun of it. Most of the quilts I make are about 60" x 80".
This 60 second video shows the process I used for all these quilts.
The first quilt is made entirely of 2" finished squares. Over the years I have made about 4 or 5 of these quilts. They were either Quilts of Valor or just given to family or friends. I might keep this one...
The binding is Spotted Christmas Red by Zen Chic from Moda Fabrics. The wide backing is from Blender Dots by Choice Fabrics.

You are not limited to 2" finished squares. I have used 3", 4", 5" and 6" squares to make Quilts of Valor. Add borders if you like.
I was getting bored with squares so I started cutting 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles and throwing those into a container.
