    Hi Just joined. :)

    Hoping to learn Have been interested in this wonderful world for 2 years A late starter though. Wonderful, clever people doing all these beautiful things, IS it a good idea to have lots of 5 inch squares, also 2 1/2 inch squares available ? They seem as if they would be very handy for things ?

    Welcome! You will learn a lot from the folks on this board!

    Different patterns will suggest different sizes of fabric for the project you are making. However, with the popularity of precuts, you will find many newer books and patterns using 10" squares (Layer Cakes), 5" squares, (Charms), 2 1/2" squares (Mini Charms), 2 1/2" strips (Jelly rolls), etc. It's less expensive, though, if you purchase yardage off the bolt and cut the fabric to your desired size. That said, I only save scraps that fit those dimensions. But my mom almost had a stroke when she saw I was about to throw away "perfectly good 1-inch strips " and "leftover half square triangles" - so I've been saving those here lately, too!
