HST Mini Quilt Top

Remember  this pieced border?  There were probably closed to 200 corners cut off from the border.  I didn't throw away any of the scraps, I chain pieced those corner units into HST thinking one of these days I'm going to make something out of it.

Then the other day Chasing Cottons started a Quilt Class 101 .  I was motivated by what she was doing.  Voila!  After 1 day of squaring up more than 40 HST into  5 x 5 cm squares, I pieced these 25 blocks into a mini quilt top.

I haven't decided how I'm going to finish this quilt top yet.  Should I just make a mini quilt out of it or incorporate it into a bigger project?  Any suggestions?

Happy Quilting!
