    You can't cut just one! I started cutting out my 6.5 inch squares for our scrappy swap, then of course I thought well I can't just cut out 2 squares off a chunk of fabric, I'll cut a strip or two and several 6.5 squares. So I have 28 ready to go out of 50 but 220 sitting in a pile!

    I'll have enough for the Kid's Club that's for sure! Maybe we'll have another 6.5 inch swap soon.

    On the other hand there's me, who has a pile of "not quite square and less than 6.5in" pieces from learning how to use a rotary cutter.

    Whenever I make an apron, I can get a couple charm squares (5 inch) from the scraps.

    I have a whole box of them. [​IMG]

    Lets see....5 inch squares make lovely 4.5 inch four squares ( 9 inch blocks) that are nice alternated with a 9 inch block of print or solid fabric. You can even put a sashing between them.
