What do you do with extra blocks? I'm also glad I checked the measurements for the border before cutting. I use the Robert Kaufman app for my Droid phone and cut one less strip. I was able to use the fabric for binding the mats and runner. I hope to get the quilt top pinned Monday and will work on quilting it this week. The mats and runner are listed in my Etsy store. I'll have to do something with some of the other little blocks I have. It was fun to make this!

What do you do with the extras?
When I design a quilt, I calculate exactly how many blocks to make so I don't waste fabric or have extras. Occasionally I've had to make one more, or end up with extra parts, but seldom do I have enough for another project. Maybe there are scraps (eventually I'll do something with them) but I'm usually pretty good at not being wasteful.
