Green Scraps: Waste Triangle Edition


This week I used my green waste triangles to make some little Wonky Stars that finish at 4.25 inches. 

And some little green butterflies on blue solids or tone on tones that finish at 4 inches.  I have about ten - twelve more but this is all that would fit on my cutting mat covered with batting photo wall.  I think I have over 300 of these now so I guess it's about time to decide what to do with them.


Update:  I thought I would show you the actual size of the waste triangles I use.   These are some of the green waste triangles I haven't made into butterflies yet.

I like your green stars a lot; my gold/red-ish wonky stars are coming along..
Baby butterflies are adorable...(I am saving my little triangles for something or other, too) hugs, Julierose

My little waste triangles from making bindings are too small to do anything with -- if I wanted to make butterflies like your's, I'd need to create bigger scraps!

Cathy said...

The wonky stars are delightful and, as always, I applaud your use of tiny scraps!

I love your baby butterflies; what a great idea for waste triangles! Probably if I saved mine, I'd never be able to find them! ---"Love"

I love the tiny butterflies on the blue and the wonky stars look so nice on green. You really do not waste anything! I have to find ways to use my stash, not so much the scraps. Have a good weekend.

That was a nice surprise when I scrolled down and saw what you made with those waste triangles. Good job!

Those stars are so pretty and love those butterfly's. Big waste triangles you are using for them....

What beautiful waste triangle blocks. The butterflies really contrast nicely against the blue skies. And the wonky stars - what's not to like.

Great how you use every scrap of fabric. Love the green Wonky stars - all so different.

I love them all - but the green plaid in the top photo.... It called to me!

Kaja said...

I'd be happy with a whole quilt of wonky stars in those colours, and it's always lovely to see your butterflies; they are still one of my favourites.

Kaja's written everything I had to say. Those stars were good posts but even better here.

OOOOh, I love your idea for using waste triangles! much better than pairing them to make wonky HSTs! That will make an awesome allover design!

Your little wonky stars are SO CUTE!!!

So many fun triangles, they certainly weren't wasted with so many cute blocks to enjoy.
