Butterfly Wreath Progress

I have been making some slow progress on Butterfly Wreaths.  Since I am making them with scraps, I have to wait until I come across a scrap that is the right size and color for this quilt.

Since it is made from scraps, I am curious to see how the color combinations look, so the scraps tend to work up into blocks pretty quickly.  The plan is to use as much blue / green as possible with a light and a dark, but maintain a scrappy look.  Since my first block wasn't blue or green, I want to be able to use other fabrics in a way that makes the odd block fit right in as an accent without looking like an oddball that doesn't belong.

Also in the picture is the Sunlight in Winter blocks, which are also being moved forward.  As you can see, the blocks are similar, but not the same.

The blocks and fabric combinations look great. I'm still trying to decide which block I want to make from my scrap bins...too many great choices. I do have about a 10 inch chain for my matchstick mansion (haven't been doing a lot of sewing this week).

That doesn't look like slow progress to me!

That looks like a good pile of blocks to me. I like your fabric combinations, both in the little blocks and looking at ow they all work together.
