    Fabric for Grandmothers Flower Garden Quilt

    I am making a Grandmothers Flower Garden Quilt. Do any of you know the name or shade of green used in these quilts for the path? Thanks.

    Traditionally? "Spring Green"
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Look at the 30's repro greens--that's what I've used.

    I used a green I bought from Log Cabin Quilts in Ravena NY; I think it was called poison green.
    Londa Van Derzee owns the shop - she's a great gal and very helpful.

    I used a 1930 repro fabric called Apple Green.
