The rainbow scrap challenge is working with indigo or dark scraps this month. The only block I made this week was another scrappy sprouts block (pattern here). It's quite a simple 9 patch block, with 4 dark squares, 3 light squares, and 2 HST's. But when it's joined to another block, with a stem added in between, it becomes a sprout!
It's a great block to use up small bits from other projects. Did you see the finished sprout quilt over at Poppyprint? That is so inspiring - an amazing scrap quilt made by many loving quilters, and given to someone needing support and encouragement. And just look at this great rainbow version of sprouts here.
When you join a few blocks together, it becomes a bean stalk.
It will look better when there are more sprouts in the collection, but you have to start somewhere - this is my baby sprout!
Hop over to SoScrappy to see what other scrap quilters are sewing this week.
And if you're in the vicinity of Fergus, Ontario, stop by the Scottish Festival and visit me in the heritage tent. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are here from Scotland and you don't want to miss that!
