Scrappy Saturday



The yellow month is speeding by over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and I have been making a bit of a dent in the yellow scrap box. Two more blocks were added to the scrappy sprouts project this week (pattern is here).


This has been a very slow growing garden/project and that's my favourite way to make a quilt. No pressure. No deadlines. No expectations. Just making a few blocks here and there, and adding to it whenever you have a yen for it.
I like to quilt in the same way as I like to drive... believing you will get to the destination eventually, with the intention to enjoy every minute, and not be stressed about how you're going to get there.
I don't know how big this quilt will be, but it will be bigger than this, because I am still enjoying it and not ready for it to be done yet.
To see more yellow projects, hop over to the RSC link up.

  3. Those little sprouts just keep growing in their own good time. Thanks for the link. I have almost a full week to play with yellow and have finished my yellow must do's. Hmm, maybe I'll take a break from monkeys and start some sprouts.

  10. I'm in total agreement! Quilts happen in their own good time, and I intend to enjoy every moment along the way.
    That being said, I've been wanting to add some slow-growing sprouts of my own to my long long quilt queue. Maybe now's the time!

  19. Those sprouts are getting lovely the more they grow. I like your philosophy of enjoying the ride. It's,been a joy to me lately because this year I have limited what I've,taken on and been able to add one or two as I go.
