48 x 60 inches
I quilted the sprouts blocks with straight vertical lines, used the wavy serpentine stitch in all the grass green areas, and stitched around each sunflower block at the top.
Along the way, I was trying to decide what I should use for binding. Should I match the green? do something scrappy? find something in my stash that would work?
Finally I choose this pretty dot fabric that I purchased recently from Bernie's shop, Needle and Foot Fine Fabrics.
"Floralish" - perfect! It looks great with the green
and I like it all the way around.
The backing is the last of the wide backing I also bought from Bernie earlier this year, all about friendship. This is the third quilt I've used this for on the back.
"A friend is one of the nicest things you can have,
and one of the best things you can be."
This best part about quilting a quilt myself is how much fun I have looking back on all the favorite scraps I used to make it. I never could decide which block was my favorite, but I do love this center section.
How about those socks?!
I think these sprouts and sunflowers are destined to be hung somewhere in our house, but for now they're hanging from the top of our closet!
Thanks for following along as I worked on this lo-o-o-ng Work in Progress!

WooHoo, congrats my friend!! I know you are ecstatic about finishing this cutie, and it looks fantastic. Give yourself a pat on the back!!!
your quilt turned out great! i'll definitely keep a "sprouts" quilt in mind for one of my RSC projects.
This is a fabulous finish, Diann !! So happy and spring like, it would love the rain we are getting this morning.
You finished your Scrappy Sprouts and Sunflowers?? A fabulous finish it is!! I don't blame you one bit for wanting to hang it up somewhere in your house. It's SEW cheerful!
This is soooo awesome! I just love it!
It really inspires me to get going on my version.
I love the blue across the top and plan to copy you!
I love it! Just the happy ray of sunshine needed right now.
Lovely! That turned out great! Pretty colours. The socks are nice too.
Gorgeous finish! It is so happy and cheery. Woop woop hooray! Such a great RSC project!
Beautiful quilt! That was the perfect choice for the binding fabric.]
Love your sunflowers, cheery and springy!! A great wall hanging!!
I'm glad you thought, "No I shouldn't" and worked on the quilt instead. What a wonderful finish, Diann. It's so bright and cheerful. It will be fun to see where you decide to have it greet you in your house! Well done! And so much more satisfying than housecleaning!
Wonderful finish! This quilt will brighten up anyplace that you choose to display it!
a finish words and dots all in the same post! Whee! your little sock feet, lol! What a gorgeous quilt, great job Diann
LOVE how this came out! Congrats on the finish and good choice on selecting what to do on your solitary day! I would have made the same choice!
Thanks for sharing your scrappy sprouts. What a fun finish! Dots of the binding are the perfect way to finish off a super fun quilt.
Pure Sunflower magic! Congrats on the finish!
Love this finish!! I was hoping to see you show the final quilt. It looks fabulous.
It looks great, such a happy looking quilt. Yes, it's taken a wee while, but then, some projects do, dont they. At least it doesn't date back 20 years like my recently assembled top does!
What a lovely quilt! Great colours and I always love sunflowers - growing some in our garden at present. The binding was a perfect choice.
Clean the refrigerator or finish the scrappy Sprouts quilt? No contest. You definitely made the right choice and I love that backing fabric. This will brighten up any room you put it in.
Love, love love this scrappy, happy quilt!
It is just perfect! It was so fun watching it come to fruition. I know you’ll find the perfect place for it!
I'm glad you didn't do the "shoulds" list. It would have been a very boring post, lol. I so love this quilt. Just in time for Summer too. You did an awesome job and I enjoyed watching it grow. It definitively need to be hung in a special place. Congrats, Diann, it's gorgeous! ;^)
I am so happy I was able to see this finish! It's a happy 'full of sunshine' scrappy quilt! What a great use of scraps! Well done and now that this is finished...what are you going to do next? Dust or mop?!
Congratulations! It's so colorful and cheerful! And the binding was the perfect choice.
I love this finish Diann. And your quilting really enhances the quilt. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
I just love your quilt. As people have said before, it is a perfect spring/summer quilt.
I have tried to find the pattern but am having no luck. Does anyone have any information on where to buy this pattern.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
The Sunflowers quilt turned out just perfectly! It’s so cheerful and happy, and will certainly give you a boost during the darker months. Congratulations on a fantastic finish!
Forgive me for living under a rock. It is so shiny and bright and gorgeous as I crawled out from beneath it. Must be your spectacular sunflowers swaying in the breeze :-) Awesome Finish, Diann!!!
Congratulations on a gorgeous finish! The binding is perfect. It should definitely hang some place you can enjoy it.
