Scrapping

A while ago, I started collecting all the scraps from my quilts in a laundry basket instead of throwing the remainder away when a qui I have a friend in Texas who makes the most beautiful scrappy quilts from leftover scraps that people give to her.  I am not quite patient enough to sew together all the tiny little pieces like she does, but it seems a shame to get rid of the extra prices when they can be turned in to a perfectly good quilt.  So today I was not very interested in doing anything too difficult, so I started sorting through the basket and sewing the leftover strips in a quilt as you go method. I got a fairly respectable pile of blocks done-



But I think that the basket of scraps looks like it has more in it than when I started!  How many quilts do you think I can get out of this anyway?
