Orange 1.5 and Crumbs



Crumb Butterflies


A few orange 3 inch spools plus a stray dark purple I forgot to make last month. 


A couple of whatever this block happens to be - made of 1.5 postage stamps and muslin strips.  I made the orange and black one yesterday but made the orange and blue one either last year or the year before.  I think I will use the plaid in the background for sashing. I saw a...

...vintage 30s quilt a couple of years ago on Ebay (above) and was inspired to make my own from scraps.   Seller called it "Vintage 30s Roman Stripe".  I know Roman Stripe as a different block. 

Got scraps? Orange ones?

The ghost moth blocks are so lovely. Your take on the vintage quilt will work into a lovely and colourful quilt. So much fun to try to reproduce a vintage quilt using today's fabrics.

You made me look (and download) the ghost moth pattern. I love your scrappy bright take on it.

You already made me grab the moth pattern last time, and darned if I don't want to grab it again! Apparently I need some moths/butterflies in my life!
That plaid is so perfect for those blocks. (I don't know the name of that one either...)

I love your orange butterflies! You always have such an interesting collection of blocks to share. I never got a chance to comment on your post yesterday, but the variety of butterfly qults you have been working on is so fun to see! Helped me think of a quilting friend who just passed away, who loved butterflies. Our group made a butterfly quilt in her honor awhile ago. I wish I had a picture of it to share!

Ps. I also shared a photo of your Butterflies and links here and to the pattern page on Blocklotto.com today ... I know you will inspire others as much as you inspire me.

Those moths make the nicest butterflies I've seen yet. Saw your previous post with all the butterfly fabrics and projects. What a collection!
