What can you do with a bunch of little triangles?

I saved the triangles I cut off while making the double ohio star blocks for another online quilting bee I am taking part in .  In the past, I would have just thrown them away but since I found this blog and  I play for at least 15 minutes a day, I decided to use them to make a block of my own.  I did not have a pattern or a block in mind when I started.  I just sewed them into little squares.  Trimed them to 2 and 1/2 squares and put them up on my planning board.  This is what I came out with...neat huh?  I am going to save the scraps from all future Online Bee Blocks I make and use them to complete a quilt for ME!!!Let me know what you think!  I know it is not the same as making fabric but it IS making something from nothing.  I love the fact that you can really use scraps to make interesting blocks.  what do you think of them?
They are about 9 inches square!

It is a shame to throw away anything useful when you can make something as beautiful as this.
