Sunday Quilt Inspiration: G R E E N

I spent most of today working on a green baby quilt. 



It's been one of the easiest quilts I've ever worked on. I started with scraps a few days ago and have finished the quilting. Only binding and label left to go. Since I have so much green in my head, I thought I may as well go with it. 

Green colour palets that stand out and are eye catching, compared to our forest green - Olivia:  

They let you order books by color, subject, size, or binding!  Librarian meets decorator.  My dream.  :

Notice how the moss takes on a yellow hue...always brushing off on everything.: A good reason to eat kiwi: KIWI fruit helps your digestions with enzymes, it contains actinidain, a protein-dissolving enzyme that can help digest a meal much like the papain in papaya or bromelain in pineapple. (Photo from P.S.- I made this...):

From full to finished...almost!

I've spent the last two days cutting scraps into strips and sewing those strips into wide strips.


And then what did I do? Cut the wide strips into blocks, of course. I've been meaning to make a strip quilt using scraps, which (let's face it) I have plenty of. Out came the green scrap bucket and I cut strips of 2½", 2", and 1½". 


This is what the green bucket looks like now. I forgot to take a before picture, but the yellow bucket is a good example of what it looked like.

  
 I tossed a few of those yellow scraps into the quilt, and the quilt found it's name:


X's and O's.

And a project is well on its way to the longarm. Hopefully they will begin their visit tomorrow.
