Scrappy Sprout Quilt Top

Pin It
I got my Scrappy Sprouts quilt top done!

And it is just what I was hoping for... I love it so much that it's going to thrill me and hurt to give it away.

Though I'm not sure how to quilt it?  Suggestions?

Scrappy sprouts

I went with an Essex yarn-dyed linen blend in flax.  I think it was the perfect complement to the backgrounds on the blocks, has great texture, AND meant that I didn't have to create scrappy sashing.  I love how it turned out (and again -- this is why I have a stash).

The kids love it too.

Seriously, this happens every time I lay down a quilt or quilt top.

What a pretty quilt! I'd probably quilt it with a grid on an angle.

This is so wonderful. Good call on the Essex linen. I would probably stipple it...
