I sewed the 2-patches into 4-patches and then the 4-patches into 8-patches (so much chain-piecing!!), prepping to create the 16-patches.
My scraps that would become 16-patches don't really go together to become quilts at this time. Know what that means? I need to make more 8-patches and see what happens, or build frames for 8-patches or tall 16-patches and tie them together that way. Just having a white buddy on each little square isn't enough to bring cohesion.
So this project will continue. I'll keep building new quilts and creating new scraps, and eventually it'll work out. It's all good.
