    Greens my favorite color. My eyes are green. A room just doesn't look right without it. It's nature's neutral. It changes with the seasons: spring green-clean leans to yellow, summer green-bright, fall green-full bodied leans to yellow: winter yellow-dark, greyed and leans to blue. Then peuce looks great with purples. Lime with purple and salmon. LOVE GREEN

    I'm in the LOVE green group! Sage, forest, "army"...you name it, I love the darker greens. Paired with rust, amber, tans, browns...right up my alley. My problem is with reds...I never have the right shade!

    I feel your pain. There is a piece of fabric that I've had for some time. It's a floral print with a black background. I'd love to find green fabric to match the leaves. There are two shades of what I call dusty jade. Every green I find is either too yellow or too blue.

    I love greens, but I agree that what I have is generally not what I want. One early spring day a friend and I drove to her quilt class. She commented on the hundreds of shades of green around us in the woods. So true!

    i have that problem with just about every color in the rainbow. LOL
    greens and yellows are the biggest problem for me, though.
    i have plenty of each but never the right fabric for any given project.

    i think it's time i reversed my process.
    instead of deciding on a quilt and then searching for the fabrics ...
    gather a set of fabrics and search for the right quilt to use them in.

    wish me luck. LOL

    I have lots of greens also. I have noticed over the past few years, that most of the Christmas lines that come out, have greens with yellow in them. I have not been able to find a pretty print that is a true christmas green in a long time.

    My latest issue of Quiltmaker has a wall hanging Heart to Heart that shows it in greens. After having made the red one, I am going for the green one. Maybe this pattern would give you 'permission' to put those greens together. It is a Dresden plate/fan design so maybe that will be an inspiration.

    So true about Christmas green. I do not buy greens with yellow in them, ugly.
    I have lots of basic greens that I use with no problems.
    Reds are a problem with so many shades. I use mostly burgundy reds.

    My problem is I really like green, one look at my stash and you can see the stacks of green. As you mentioned, getting the "right" green can be a quest.

    Green has always been my favorite color. I never had much green quilting fabric other than what I wanted for leaves until my Mom bought a sage green sofa. Now that's the shade I shop for - what a difference in the green colors! I have enjoyed all the new shopping I can do....
