Last year, I made her a "Squary Quilt" using some soft greens. I added a few blue greens to the mix and even added one that had tiny purple flowers.
On another note: Do you know you are suppose to sleep under a quilt, before you give it to a loved one? Yes --- We slept under it and so did Toby!
Anyway, back to the green fabrics for the Project Quilting Challenge.
I grouped the green fabrics together and took photos of them. This helps me to see them and to start dreaming about a possible quilt.
The first one was the dots and check prints.
I like this next collection best, because it has a little blue and a little purple. I hope my daughter chooses these fabrics.
If I were making something for my home, I would choose some of these greens and blues. It would be perfect in my living room. Our home is surrounded with pine trees.
I do not like these greens, but there were in my fabric stash! I might need them for a binding or the backing fabric.
I love the greens with the pink roses.
The next collection of fabrics have more of a blue green look.
And last but not least my collection of reproduction 30's fabrics. There are lots of greens here, but less than a fat quarter of each color. That is ok, as I plan to do something scrappy for the tree inspired challenge.
Yesterday and today, I did a little brain storming about the quilt. I thought about using my Textures Quilt Pattern for the background.

I also thought about making a wonky log cabin quilt. That way I could blend several of the greens and blues together and use several strip sizes for the logs of the cabin.
I have a paper pieced pine tree that would be cool too.
I may dream up something completely different tonight!
Thanks for following along!
