Caught Red Handed!

There's been some more red in my sewing room this week!

This bright red 10 inch Tiny Rails block is finished -

and enough bits sewn together for a dark red one, too.

When that one is sewn together, there will be 12 of these blocks.

Progress in little bits and pieces!  600 of them, so far!

Two red Scrappy Sprouts are also finished now.

I love this project more and more with each new color added!

Those purple ones still need to be fixed!

After I've made 20 of these fun blocks, I'm picturing a 4 x 5 layout with four scrappy blooms at the top.  Maybe some green sashing between the columns of sprouts, a border...?  Hmmm... I'm going to enjoy figuring this one out!

Love how those rails are looking! So fun to figure out how the quilt will look as you keep adding blocks and work out the design. Have fun and looking forward to seeing how you put them all together.

The sprouts have been on my list for a couple years. I need to finish a few others before starting something new. One of these days.

I love all your blocks, but those sprouts just make me smile! One of these years I'm going to start making some of my own - in the meantime I'm enjoying yours!
