Brownies


Brown is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I used my 1.5 inch scraps to make up four 9 inch butterfly blocks (aka Beggar Blocks). 


I then made two more blocks in white and cream because that is all I needed to bring my total blocks to 56. 


I've been making these blocks since last year.  I was inspired by a vintage butterfly quilt  I had seen at a blog called Nostalgia Cafe.  


This week I also got as far as cutting pieces for 29 brown 3 inch Spool blocks but haven't had a chance to get them assembled yet.  There's always next week...or the week after...or the week after that...or...

Got scraps?

That's a LOT of butterflies . . . have fun putting that top together (and yes, the spools will not run away).

Looks like the butterflies will make a striking quilt. Looking forward to reading about the finished flimsy/quilt.

Another bunch of great blocks to add to the mix. It won't be long now until the quilts are ready to come together.

Beautiful butterflies. Looking forward to seeing them fly together in a quilt top. This is a five Saturday month. Lots of time to play with brown scraps.
