Made too many blocks...again

I never even checked the suggested layout for the Idaho Square blocks that was on the Quiltmaker site below:

The article says I only needed 30 blocks.
Guess how many I made...218!!!
Oh my what to do...sell them?

Subee that is hilarious! I am so in love with Bonnie Hunter's quilt backs that I OFTEN use extra blocks to enhanced the BACK of a quilt! Since you have SO MANY, you could make a set of quilted place mats for Christmas presents! (I use a quilt for a table cloth too!)

Take care and keep on quilting!

Did I hear someone say a swap? lol. I mean you would have to exchange for something else, obviously.

Well, 30 blocks was the *suggested* layout. If you want to make a quilt to cover your roof or the football field at the high school, you have a good start.

Subee I did the same thing with the blocks for 9 in the middle from Bonnie's "Adventures in Leaders and Enders". The pic of the 9 batch said to make 230 so that is what I made. I needed 64. I'm still finding places to use the. If you don't feel like throwing them together for a charity quilt there are people who take orphan blocks. I send mine to Brenda in Idaho and she makes quilts for the local woman's shelter.
