As promised, here’s the second, and correct, batch of Scrappy Triangles for the October round of the charity quilt bee do. Good Stitches. These have already made their way to Jacey, but I thought I’d add some pictures here.

Scrappy Triangles Bow Ties

You can see in the photos that I got a little excited arranging these blocks in various ways. There are the bow ties or butterflies above, and the sort of chevron approach below.

I like the idea of making wonky, or lopsided, squares out of the little scrap triangles… And then some more exact squares.

And then the colors… I arranged a few green scraps in the middle… And then some blues.

I made a quilt as part of a guild challenge that used this block. I used a more monochromatic color scheme (blue), but I think I’d like to go scrap-crazy on another one of these. I want to pick a bright, non-neutral color for the background – maybe yellow? or blue?, and then just let the scraps fall where they may. So much to sew, so little time…
