I have enjoyed making the last few of these blocks so much more than the first! On the trip to my FIL's surprise 80th birthday party, I tamed all my stash of shirts, Thimbleberries, and some random leftovers from baby quilts, etc. Now I just reach into the appropriate pile and get the right sized piece for paper piecing. So fast, and much less waste.
Don't really have a plan for these other than to tame my overabundant stash of scraps. Making little plastic templates really helped as well. When I eye-ball a piece, it's sort of like putting leftovers away...the container is always way too big for the amount of food!
These are 4" unfinished:
