Now that I’ve recovered (tee hee) from the Most Epic Quilt that was the result of me being “in charge” at Sew.Quilt.Give. in March 2013, I can move forward with the March 2014 quilt. I hope I’ve kept this one easier and smaller.
I missed out on the Scrappy Trip Along that whipped around the interwebs last year, so that’s what I asked for. I requested ocean blues and greens, referencing the Pacific along the Central California Coast as a color guide. I’m planning a Barn Raising layout, just as soon as I clean up enough of the floor.
If you want to see some of our finished quilts, check out this wonky cross quilt (from last November) and the Shattered quilt (from August). The big “slab” quilt from September is coming together, too.
The request for May was for Scrappy Sprout blocks.
Nice and springy, don’t you think? They are basically nine-patch blocks with a couple of artfully placed half-square triangles. Of course, I misread the tutorial photo and cut out squares enough for the sprout leaves to be nine-patches, with the neutral squares as an extra row (making the block 3×4). I made 3 extra blocks because wasn’t that the best use for the extra tiny squares? I mean, they’d just get lost if I put them back in the fabric bins, right?
