RSC last day of green

This is the last Saturday of light green for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I strayed a little and worked on green, I’m out of light greens and light green projects.  I completed one black, white and green crazy patch.

I am done with this project, I just don’t have the desire to do any more, so I’ve counted up my squares and realize that I should make a couple more blocks (in other colours) and I will have enough blocks for a nice 50 x 60 inch quilt.
I then finished putting the green shashing and the green frog border on a mile a minute quilt.

I’ve been enjoying my garden this summer and thought I would share a couple of photos (kind of green), my son planted Angel’s Trumpet (Datura), here it is about to bloom, in bloom and a side view, enjoy.

This quote reminds me of what we as quilters do with fabric…

De Novo quilt by Janet

These lovely fabrics are from the Benartex Tempo collection and the pattern is called De Novo.

Janet picked the Spirals pantograph by Denise Schillinger and a light olive thread to complete this modern beauty.

De novo is a Latin expression meaning "from the beginning," "afresh," "anew," "beginning again."  A great name for this quilt.
Don't be afraid of change, it's leading you to a new beginning.

Baby Girl Quilt by Margaret

This adorable pink baby quilt done with the Yellow Brick Road pattern was made by Margaret, a lovely gift for a new baby.

Margaret decided that the Daisies Galore pantograph by Irene Steele and a cotton candy coloured thread was the right finishing touch.
