Bridging the Months

Or maybe I should call this "Bridging the Years," because I truly have stretched this quilt out over 2.5 years now!  (I will never win any races with my quilting, lol!)

I made lots of Scrappy Sprouts blocks throughout 2018.


In 2019, I sewed the sprouts together and made some sunflowers to go at the top.


Finally this year, I figured out how the background for the sunflowers should be made!


And this week, this quilt top is finally layered and basted for quilting!  Whoop whoop!


This quilt has lots of May's green in it - dark, light, and in between.


And, of course, June's pink is represented, too!

How about a little pink penguin? 🐧🐧🐧

So, I guess you know what I'll be working on this week!

I'm SEW happy for you, Diann!! This is a BIG step in the process and I'm really looking forward to seeing your Sprout Quilt completed.

Cathy said...

I’m so excited to see your beautiful, happy quilt so near completion! BTW, if you look closely at my Garlic Knots finished quilt, in the upper left you’ll see a block made with that very same pink penguin fabric. (I wonder where that came from, LOL!!) Sprouts is stunning, Diann, and stunning things take awhile to grow! xo

wow 2.5 years I didn't realize it had been that - I have loved following your progress on it.

I've enjoyed watching your progress on the sprouts and just LOVE the results! Sunflowers are a great choice.

LA Paylor said...

oh yes, pink penguins please! Sunflowers were really stunning grouped in three... on top of a mottled hand dye would be a gorgeous wall art.

Penguins and Posies - precisely perfect (I'm working on my alliteration)! Woohoo for a basted quilt; will be fun to see the quilting!

Lovely, it such a Sping like design, isn't it. And it's not such a long time really, some of my UFOs are much older

Congratulations on a wonderful top! All the colors are so bright and spring-like! And who could resist that adorable penguin? Great job.

It doesn't seem like you have been working on this quilt that long. It has been fun to see it evolve. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

Cathy said...

My sprouts have bridged the years too! I need to get my backing pieced and then it is on my list to finish in June.

I love that you added flowers to yours.

Susie H said...

Your Sprouts turned out gorgeous! Love the scrappy skies with the lovely yellow sunflowers. Great job. I bet you get it finished this week!

PS I noticed the little penguins right off! *wink*

That is such a fun quilt! It's definitely worth it no matter how long it took to get it all together.
