|Three Sprout blocks (click here) made from my green scraps. Block design by Tracey from TraceyJay Quilts.|
I celebrated my birthday yesterday, with some scrappy sewing in my birthstone's colour (Peridot). It didn't even occur to me until today, as I looked at these photos. What a fun coincidence! I'm not prejudiced against green (those in the Peridot range of colour, often catch my eye), but it's rare that I will make something with green as the focus colour in my project. Until yesterday, that is.
|Making Sprout Blocks has been on my must-sew-list for quite awhile now.|
How could I resist diving into my scraps, cutting up little green squares, with the wonderful Sprout block that Tracey designed as my inspiration (saved on this Pinterest board)!
|Lots of additions to the scrap basket - this particular one is usually only for the very smallest sized scraps. Filling it is the best way to motivate me to get more scrappy sewing underway. ;o)|
Funny thing, I seem to have made more (albeit smaller ;o) scraps after cutting up all those scrappy squares. Perhaps there will be more scrappy sewing to do (such as adding those greens with some blues for this ongoing project). ;o)
