Scraps of Teal


Teal is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I don't have many teal scraps but what I do have I hope to get used up. 

Here's some teal Twinklers from the 2.5 inch scrap bag. 

And here's my teal 3.5 inch butterflies from the 1.5 inch scrap bag. 


I started making butterflies toward the end of the year last year for RSC. I decided to start sewing them into 9 inch blocks for a quilt inspired by a vintage quilt you can see in the blog post at Nostalgic Cafe. 


I now have 11 blocks and lots of loose butterflies I might use in a border. Or not.

Pretty twinklers! I did a whole quilt with white stars and blue backgrounds. My son loves it!
I have some butterfly's all cut out to sew. So fun to look at and love how you grouped them.
