When I made my 16 patch blocks, I had leftover 4 patch strips. A lot of leftover strips. Like over 130. They are going to go into tops for the nursing homes this year. Since they are 12x3 finished strips, I think if I turn them into 12x12 finished blocks I would only need 25 strips per quilt. That would make a 60x60 top before the border. This is my idea for a block. A 6x12 part on one side of the strip and a 3x12 strip on the other side to make the block. I could alternate the orientation of the blocks to give it more variety.
And I would have enough strips to make 5 nursing home quilts! That would be a great start on this years quilts.
