Red is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. But that's about to change soon.
I used 4.5 inch scraps to make some Flying Geese bodies. For the other part (wings?) I have been using secondary colors if the color of the month is a primary color and vice versa.
Last week when I was working with 3.5 inch scraps I made the bottom sets of butterfly wing HSTs and now this week when I was working with 4.5 inch scraps for the Flying Geese I made the top sets of wings and paired the two up in some red butterflies. I've also (obviously) been using up bits and pieces of white on white (WOW) scraps.
And, oh those waste triangles! I had lots of red ones in the box. I have been saving blue on blue (BOB) or blue solid scraps for the "sky" background for these little butterflies - a kaleidoscope of butterflies!
I have hundreds of these little four inch blocks now so maybe I need to decide just how many is enough. ( I wonder if I can count that high).
I also used waste triangles in these Wonky Stars (with 2 inch scrap backgrounds and red center).
Then I used more waste triangles (I have gads of them - that's what you call a box of waste triangles, right? - a gad) on some Wonky Hearts. The hearts were 2 x 4.5 red scraps and I used white waste triangles for the background. I have lots of white waste triangles so was experimenting a little with those hearts. I'm thinking I might use them as Wonky Log Cabin centers.
Then I used a couple of scrap chunks to make my improv circle. I have been using red and brown as my constants in these along with the RSC color so only made one.
Then I made 3 large Burgoyne Surrounded blocks with bits and pieces of different red/pinkish scraps. (I made the one in the upper right previously so just used it to fill in for the photo.) Now that I see them together I'm thinking I'll skip the sashing and just make more blocks. I really don't like making sashing/adding sashing strips so why torture myself? But, then again, when I look at the inspiration quilt I'm thinking maybe making/adding sashing isn't really that painful.
