Holiday Monday and Sprouts of all kinds

August Long...ah the images that conjurs up. Lazy mornings, sun drenched garden, raspberries, watermelon, reading, sewing, and most of all cuddles with three of my grandchildren. Brian & Falon's three little ones are here for the weekend and we have done all of the above. They will have to go home later today, but in the meantime we have some more fun to have...spray park in on the agenda today. Last night we went to see Despicable Me 2 (in 3D) it was very very good.

But there have also been time for Grandma to get into my studio chair. While Hanna sorts red 2" squares for me, Ty and Madison are doing their patient best to see past me and watch their show on my computer.

So here is my colour sample of my sprouts collection so far. I have a lot of orange sprouts, and a lot of the sapphire blue. I did not do any green sprouts - I made FWQ blocks in green instead. This is going to make an outstanding quilt put together in the 'modern' format with a sashing treatment of to pick the perfect one.

Take some time to head over to SoScrappy and see what other RED loveliness is going on for the month of August.
Love and hugs to all


  1. What do you mean by the "modern" format?

    1. I think of these quilters and their bold use of an all white or dove grey for their settings. I know we have all used a white as a neutral background, but seeing them again after 20 years it looks so clean and modern.
