But first thank you to everyone who commented on last week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge post about my Scrappy Sprouts quilt! I really got lots of ideas, and made a small start on some changes.
I took all of the medium blue squares off the wall, and added a row of neutral squares before putting some lighter blue squares above that row.
What about adding a light blue butterfly?
So, a small step on that project.
This week, I also stitched up Libby's Tiny Tuesday block -
Two steps forward! :)
Then I made an attempt at Angela's Double Nine Patch for this week.
Now in spite of being a bit wonky, I could probably live with this one, except I don't really like the way I've got the colors arranged - the balance is off.
One step back...
I decided to start over!
Before I needed to quit for the day, I had these little pieces and parts ready to sew together.
I don't know if you can tell, but I think I'll be happier with this one.
I'll get it finished up later this week after my mom's visit is over.

your flower garden quilt is coming together. Hope your mom is having a good visit with you
I think you're headed in the right direction with the sky. I have some light blue sky scraps I can mail you, if you want them.
Always fun when family is visiting. Looks like you have decided on a plan. Can't wait to see how it comes together.
I love your sprouts quilt! The dresdens are a great idea!
I think if you changed the two bottom squares to the dark blue in the center block you might like it better.....D.....
your scrappy sprouts quilt is looking wonderful !
Sometimes one step backward gives you a big leap forward after. I think this is what happen here. It's a great block now. Enjoy! ;^)
I hope you are relaxing, enjoying your visit with your mom, eating lots of peaches, and playing with those blocks now and then. Sometimes we have to back up a bit and then move forward. It's all good, right?!
The new Tiny Double 9-Patch is better. Do you have anything to switch it for the String of Pearls fabric? It's reading darker than the others. Although... It's a Scrappy block and sometimes the scraps just want to play!!
Sometimes, it happens. When pieces are so tiny, you never know how it's going to turn out! I think they are both fine, but it is your blocks, so whatever you decide!
Your beautiful Dresden Sunflowers are really looking great. I love the spots of blue with the neutral background. The TT blocks look good too. I thought it was a bit of a challenge for me too to get the right mix that would make me happy.
That row of neutral blocks definitely works. Like the butterfly too. It's going to be a beautiful finish.
One thing I have learned for sure is you have to redo things if you aren't really happy with them! Your Scrappy Sprouts top is coming along nicely.
