Got Scraps?

I do.
Way more than I know what to do with.
This tote has only my girl colored scraps in it.
It overwhelms me at times.
Not today though. I took a break from

 this pile of key fobs, (96 sewn up and waiting for hardware)
and started cutting scraps into 4" strips.
I then sewed the rows together and it came out looking like this.
 It's the start of a blanket top.
I am at the point where I need to decide which fabric to back it with.
Or if I should frame it in a another print before I back it.
The best part?
I tried to be "smart" when I was cutting the strips so now I have a pile

of 3" strips waiting to be sewn into a blanket top.
Cut once, sew twice.
