I had been digging around in my Christmas scraps for pieces to make Christmas bags for wrapping presents but became distracted by some of the 2.5 inch scraps and so I decided to make some ornaments.
Maybe I'll have enough ornaments made by next year for Christmas quilt.
I originally started out making snowballs but had some gray left over on my desk from making snowflakes so decided to add the gray at the top and turn the snowballs into ornaments.
And that left me with some waste triangles...
I started to throw them into the waste triangle box but decided instead to use them. From now on I'm going to try to use them right away (I said try) and not add to the box. Plus I think for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2017 I'm going to try to use the waste triangles in the color of the month in a few projects.
I turned some of them into star points on wonky star blocks that will finish at 4.5 inches.
I have so many white waste triangles I may also make separate black/white blocks.
But back to those waste triangles from the ornaments I just made...I also turned them into some confetti wave pieces...
...and when I get enough I'll turn them into Confetti Wave blocks.
And I also turned those waste triangles into some butterflies on blue scraps.
More butterflies I made in December to add to the pile. I should probably count the butterflies now. I know I have hundreds of 4 inch blocks. About 400 of them will make a nice big quilt!
