- Slash the blocks into 4 equal pieces vertically and horizontally; rotate 2 of the blocks 90 degrees and sew them back together
- cut them into wonky 4 patches and add a narrow black sash (perhaps 9 patches or just vertically?)
- cut them on the diagonals and sew them back together so the stripe forms a square (problem with this one is that not all the stripes are going the same direction).

Many years ago when my group was making charity quilts, a challenge was issued to make a second quilt from the scraps of the first quilt. I did start it, but the flame burned out. I am in the mood to finish it up, but I need your help. This quilt is U-G-LY. It needs a lot of help. It is those big squares in the middle. Obviously I didn't quite have the log cabin concept at the time. Please help me find a way to salvage these 12 blocks before I decide to trash them. These are some of the ideas I came up with.
