tiny reds

I couldn't wait to dig into red for the rainbow scrap challenge in September. I knew I had no shortage of red scraps - they are everywhere. Next to blue, I have more red scraps than any other color. Probably because, there are so many reds. Many of my scraps are gifted to me, and, it is a well used color among quilters. I get a lot of  small scraps in red.

I made the tiny houses from 2 inch strip bin. I look for the shortest strip and cut it 2 1/2 inches and 3 1/2 inches, hopefully, until I use it all.

These tiny stars are made next from the cut off triangle from the roofs of the houses, and a box of triangle cut offs. I use 2 inch strips to cut the background.

The shine block is made from a jelly roll I chose at the beginning of the year, and, this, is the closet to red I had from the strips. If you squint, it looks almost red.

It looks like I have 4 of the 6 rainbow projects caught up for September, with 2 to go. Maybe, I will pull out something old from the project closet. Or maybe, I will get complacent and forget.
