Kaleidoscopes, Butterflies and Kaleidoscopes of Butterflies


I've added 30 more butterflies to my Kaleidoscope of Butterflies.  (Did you know a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope of butterflies?)


I've been using waste triangles for the butterflies and blue 2.5 inch squares for the backgrounds. 


There's even some butterflies in the blue backgrounds. 

Linking up butterflies to:


And speaking of butterflies...did you know that Monarchs need Milkweed to survive?  I let it grow wild out back in my gardens. I took this pic during the winter of 2008. It's how milkweed looks out there this time of year.

A Kaleidoscope of butterflies seems a very fitting way to refer to a group of them. Your Kaleidoscope in blue is looking great.

What a perfect way to use waste triangles. Love them on the summer blue background. They are so happy!
I'm so glad you found a photo of milkweed in winter. It's good to see them in gardens when they are so necessary to other living creatures.

This pattern is so simple, and so effective. I've seen these squares in other arrangements, but how cool is this? Love it!

This is the best way to use those tiny scraps. Now I want to make one too.
