New Quilt in progress

I went a whole 4 days without starting anything and to tell you the truth I was BORED!! Yes I got caught up on my cleaning and I did get stuff done...but in the between...I didn't know what to do! I mean you have to be really careful not to clean too much!! You might actually get a clean house, and I am always looking for ways to do the bare mininum! Anyway...I decided that I wanted to do something about my scraps. I started collecting 2" squares to make a large quilt with, but after cutting for an hour, it gets old...so that will be a LONG in progress work. But I have tubes and tubes of scraps that I have been saving for a string quilt. So I got out a large one and went to town.

 I started by cutting out 8" paper squares. I have decided that if I do 10 squares a day I will have a quilt top ready in approximately 10 days. So far I have done 14 squares.

14 down....70 to go...
Now what do you do with the scraps??

Too small for anything that I am doing....so what do you do with them?
