Scrappy Saturday Sprouts

Purple is the colour of the month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and all my RSC projects need purple, so I must get busy. I am starting the month with my scrappy sprouts project and have finished one block already. I have scraps sorted for 2 more purplish sprouts and hope to sew them today.
Scrappy Sprouts

Are you tempted to start your own scrappy sprouts project? It's a perfect rainbow scrap challenge project. If you make a block or two each month, before you know it, you'll have enough for a quilt. The pattern is free from Traceyjay Quilts and uses up 2.5" squares and HSTs.
If you need more encouragement to start making sprouts, just check out an amazing quilt made from sprout blocks over at Poppyprint. The quilt was published in Homespun magazine. 
Love it!

Hop over to SoScrappy to see what purple scraps are been sewn into this week.

This will be a beautiful quilt. I'm always tempted to start something new. But do I have the time to do all of it?

This pattern was on my list of "possibles" for this year's RSC too. I ended up choosing something else, but this design will stay on the list as something to make a dent in my 2.5" boxes of squares and triangles. Looking forward to watching your garden grow!

It is a very interisting block. A fun and easy block to make and have a pretty quilt along the RSC.

Your sprouts are very convincing and sweet, so I checked out Krista's post and it is so lovely. I'm sure you will enjoy adding the purples to your sprout garden.
