What to do with a bag of triangles

At our quilt  ministry group we received a donation of a bag full of 2 1/2″ by 2 1/2″ triangle blocks.  Not wanting to let them go to waste, I took the bag  home and started playing around with them.  Using a 9 patch design with a solid square in the middle created a star block.  These star blocks were then stitched together resulting in a secondary design of a pieced square block between each star.  The quilt really needed a border fabric to tie it all together and I ended up using a narrow cream fabric with a nice red print which emphasized all the red triangles.  It was fun to save the bag of scraps from the trash pile and end up with something useful- a  lap sized  quilt to be given to a person in need.
