Scrap Busting - Red Love

I began my scrap busting journey with RED.   
confetti star, 2 wonky stars, 4 9-patch and a log cabin:







Although I had plenty of scraps to do the intended blocks, I realized that I really don't have a large variety of red fabrics.  At the quilt shop yesterday {just buying thread} I noticed that there is not a lot of true red fabric available. I'll have to keep my eye out for some more juicy red.

But now, the scraps are taking over my sewing space.  Time to put them to good use!

Here's several idea I've found for getting my stash under control:











I may use all of these ideas....maybe a color at a time???  

I'd love to hear your ideas for busting your scraps~
