Cutting for Ghost Moth

Cutting takes time. However, what took more time was finding scraps that would work for both the background and the Moths on it. I pulled out scraps from the container that holds Orphans, most of which were cut at 1.5" strips so became easy to cut squares. Over 200 were needed just of that small square!

Each Moth has 4 parts, left & right wings for top & bottom of the Insect. Background pieces form the shape.  The 5" charm back is pieced, so the remainder of the quilt should go together easily. I've labeled white pieces so I don't have to try & figure out how they work on the quilt.
