Fireworks Quilt

I just started on a quilt that is WAAAAYYYYY beyond my skill level, but it's just so beautiful, that I went for it anyway. Fireworks, by Thimble Blossoms. But I was truly astonished by the amount of fabric it calls for. I found some no waste tutorials, though, here:
No Waste Flying Geese
No Waste Long Half Triangle (Tip: I finger pressed these 2 pieces in half in order to find the middle of each to line them up right!)
No Waste Corner Block All combined, these used maybe 2/3 of the originally listed fabric? I put together a cutting list for a single block.
From the FQ: 
(4) 2.5" square
(2) 4.5"x5.25" (accent color)
(1) 5.25" square
(2) 5.75" square (4) 2.5"x3" (as written, or 3.25" x 2.5"for full 1/4" seam)
(1) 4.5" square (accent color)

From the white: 
(4) 2.5"x3.25"
(1) 5.75" square
(2) 5.25" square
(4) 2.5"x7" (as written, or 7.25" x 2.5" for full 1/4" seam)
(4) 2.5" square
