Last year I was in 3 virtual quilting bees. I have loved all the different blocks that I have made (stay tuned for a post soon about some of the more recent blocks - I haven't blogged them for a long time!) but my most favorite thing was seeing all the different amazing fabrics that are out there! Last January I started saving a small snippet of material from all the different patterned fabrics people would send me to make their block out of (save for -ahem- the few blocks I have left to finish up from the end of the year!) with the idea that at the end of the year I could have a great collection of scraps to do something with - a kind of overview of all the pretty materials I worked with.
So now .... I have about 200 2x2" little scraps of fabric with NO idea what to do with them! A few weeks ago I caught the hexagon fever that was going around and made these little beauties out of about 20 of the squares ...
Which I absolutely love, but honestly I can't imagine what I'd do with 200+ of them. I'm not a big fan of an all-hexagon quilt ... I like the ones better that have hexes sewed onto a bigger piece of fabric providing some white space ... but I just don't know.
The only other option I can think of right now would be to disassemble the 20 or so hexes I already have put together (which wouldn't be that big of a pain) and do something else with the scraps. Maybe a ticker tape quilt - like this one:

Or something else all together? I just can't decide! What would you do?
