Green, specifically forest and sage green, is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) color for May. I'm going to use all greens because I have a lot of RSC projects in the works so I'll make some of my blocks this month and when the RSC color is lighter and brighter greens I'll make the rest of my blocks.
I have a giant tote of green scraps. I took out the solid scraps and any scrap chunks (larger than a six inch square and smaller than a Fat Quarter). Then I sorted the rest of the scraps by width. If they did not fit nicely into any width category or pieces were small they went into crumbs or strings or a pile to be cut into squares.
5 inch width pieces were cut 5 x 9.5 and made into Horizon blocks for donation quilts I'll make near the end of the year. That light one on top right might be too light and may end up in the orphan pile but for now it's going into the block collection.
5 inch squares in jewel tones got made into Chips (Economy Blocks). The corners are trimmed and made into Quarter Square Triangles (QSTs). As I come across five inch squares in jewel tones I put them into the project box and make them into Chips at the same time I make the RSC colored ones.
The rest of the five inch pieces I cut into a square if possible. Some of the longer pieces I cut in half to use when I make my blocks from 2.5 inch scraps. From the bright green 2.5 inch width lengths I cut four squares if possible for Indian Hatchet blocks when I'm ready to make those. If there was a 1.5 x 5 piece I cut it into pieces 1.5 x 3.5 pieces for a new project and then I had postage stamp sized pieces left for my postage stamp collection. Any 2.5 inch width pieces that were left that weren't long I cut into squares and/or 1.5 x 2.5 inch pieces for Legos.
That does it for the 5 inch width green scraps. Next I'll be working with the green 3.5 and 2 inch scraps.
