Orange 1.5


Orange is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
This week I made three nine inch butterfly blocks that consist of eight 3 inch "butterflies".  And that makes 50!  Only 6 more to go and I'm ready to assemble a top! I've been making these from 1.5 inch scraps for a couple of years. 


Also from 1.5 inch scraps...spools. They are made the same way as the butterflies but with a different arrangement of fabric.  I've been making these for a couple of years also. 

And that's it for my RSC projects that use 1.5 inch scraps. 

Got Scraps?
Use the orange ones up this month and join us each ScrapHappy Saturday.

Butterflies or spools? It's all in the colour placement. Both are lovely. Great variety in the orange scraps!

You have a fabulous collection of orange scraps turned into bow ties and butterflies...choice is yours. Well done.

Whoa. I had no idea that these were that small. Love the block arrangement.

Karen said...

Oh so pretty tiny little blocks.

You always have the prettiest blocks! (And the best scraps...)
Whatever will you do when there are no more butterflies to be made?

Between the butterflies and the spools you have a very nice collection of orange. Good going!

Kate said...

Fun blocks. That blue background for the butterflies really makes the orange shine.

I love watching your spools grow. I think I may need to revisit these in another quilt. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love your butterflies, they are so sweet. I made a spool quilt as a leaders and enders a few years ago, such a fun block. I am now tempted to follow your lead and make butterflies next.

I like the blue background for your orange butterflies a lot - it's really striking.

Beautiful additions. So excited to hear how close you are.

Your orange butterflies and spools are wonderful. I look forward to seeing your quilts come together.
