Quiltville's En Provence Mystery -- Calling All Scraps!

As I do every December for the last decade or so, I am participating in Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt.  This year, we are making a quilt called En Provence.  I'm making mine Black, Gray, Lime, Lemon, Neutral, and Hot Pink.  Fun, right?

Last week's assignment was to make 221 neutral four-patches.  I'm a week behind; don't judge me.  I am on a search and destroy mission in my sewing room to locate enough neutral scraps to accomplish this task.

The first place I looked was in a bucket of 2-1/2"x4-1/2" rectangles.

Why I have a bucket of pre-cut scrappy rectangles is anyone's guess.  I'm tickled to have removed some of the contents of this bucket in hopes of completely emptying it some day.

I am confident that I've pulled out every rectangle that can possibly be considered neutral.  I'll sew through these and see how many four-patches I can come up with before I tear my sewing room apart again looking for more scraps.
