Scrappy Sprouts

Three dark blue blocks for scrappy sprouts have been pieced. I want to add dark blocks to the blocks I've accumulated so far.





I've arranged the blocks on the display floor. I didn't have room for the green blocks. I don't have any deep dark green blocks but I think it would work to add some of the darker blocks to the bottom of the green row.

I need to piece deep purple blocks and perhaps some dark grays. I've tried blending some of the colors together like the pink/red row and the yellow/orange row. 

I don't know if I like mixing the orange and  yellow blocks together like I did. Here is another view with the colors separated. I also added a red block to the bottom. I like this arrangement better. I'm going to have to blend more of these blocks together. I don't want my quilt to be wider than it is longer.

I'll keep playing with these blocks, hopefully these blocks will be sewn into a flimsy by the end of the year.

The general directions for Scrappy Sprouts are found here.

the blocks look good.......the yellow orange row looks better with the colours washing thru like in the second pic but maybe you don't need the red one then????
