Any Ideas -Foundation Piecing & the Phone Book

I call this the start of a phone book quilt.  I tore pages from my phone book and laid my six by twelve ruler on them and cut.  I then went to my scrap bucket and started foundation sewing.  I have 27 six by 10 1/2 rectangles so far.  I don't know what I am going to do with them.  Any ideas out there?  I am thinking sashing in between.  I know I need to make several more rectangles.

What a clever idea! Your blocks/strips looks like a variation of a Chinese Coins quilt, maybe Google that and see if you get some setting ideas?

It would be a great background for a big applique flower (or apple, or animal, or something...)

Why not cut some of you blocks in half and then make a strippy quilt from the large and small strips with sashing in between them? Just an idea.
