"Attic Stairs" is a no-thinking-required scrap-buster. As you generate scraps from other projects, cut and toss into 2 piles: one dark and one light. Sew pairs, then trim into final size. Different scrap quilt.
***Great idea for first quilts, squares only and very pretty!**** A genius idea for making perfect squares. Now I can get back to a project where my seam was a little off, so the strip set is an odd size that would be time consuming to cut.
