Scrappy blogs & Yellows have ran out

After reading the blogs of all the others scrapers joint in with Angela and their yellows here....
http://superscrappy.blogspot.com.au/2017/06/scraphappy-saturday-sunny-summer.html

And I'm joining in and linking up with OH SCRAP

I came across Joanne making these cute butterfly blocks.
I asked for the pattern and she had blogged about her tutorial. So I gave it a go....
I have had a lot of people ask how I sew my scraps, CRUMBS, together to make them into a block of something interesting. So while I was sewing up these butterfly blocks I took some photos.
Any size piece fits in somewhere. Just join them together... You'll be amazed with what you get....
I sewed lots of pieces together.

Then trimmed one side.


Added some more fabric...
 What you cut off somewhere, just join it to another side. It will all fit..

Then trimmed to block size I needed.

And here we go following Joanne's tutorial this is what I got...


Go here for Joanne's tutorial.

  6. I have never thought of putting "crumbs" together this way, but it finishes up just stunningly. Your butterfly block is one of the most gorgeous ones I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing! --Andrea

  7. Lovely, it is surprising how many blocks you can get from scraps. I did a class where we made blocks like yours then sliced them in half to sew with other blocks. We had a small quilt top in no time.
