I have spent two days in my sewing corner concentrating on making my RSC Sprout blocks grow into proper plants.
I have feed them and done quite a bit of pruning. There was a lot of "genetically modifying restructuring" (unpicking) required to ensure leaves had an even colour tone!
I previously had no pattern for an overall quilt design, so when I found this quilt layout in an Homespun magazine (June 2015), it got me all fired up to start putting the blocks together.
The designer of this quilt layout is Canadian Krista Hennebury.
but I got my pattern for the leaf block (which is the same as in the magazine) HERE free online from the original designer (who is acknowledged in the magazine) Tracey Jacobsen from traceyjay quilts.blogspot.
I am going to change it around a bit to suit myself. I have made too many sprout blocks, so I want to add another plant to use them and make the quilt wider. I love her flowers, but would like to make a dresden flower, perhaps a sunflower?
I am anticipating brown as a colour one month, so will make scrappy brown blocks for the soil. But for now I am hoping that the colour for September is orange so I can make the last of leaves(sprouts) and start sewing the plants together.
Happy quilting, Sue.
