Looking for an idea to cut down on my large stash of green fabrics. I don't mind having to buy a complementary color or two if I can find the right idea. It's difficult to picture what a project using mostly greens would look like. I have lots of "scrappy" patterns but that usually brings in lot of other colors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I love greens! I'll check & see what I can find. I'll be looking for my next project anyway so I'll look for both of us. BTW, I went to Newfoundland a few years ago & loved it! We have friends who have a house on Bay Bulls, can't wait to go back.
I started a Jewel Box with green and unbleached muslin and it looks great.
There's always Storm at Sea (regular pieced or paper pieced). Traditionally that pattern is done in all blues but I would think the green would look nice.
There's an old pattern called Village Green that uses all green prints. The block consists of triangles going around a plain center square. I tried doing a google search but all kind of house quilts came up instead. I don't know what the name got changed to. I have the pattern in an old book at home that I can scan into the computer and post if you're interested in seeing it.
How about adding one NEW fabric... St.Patrick's theme... and make a throw using Yellow Brick Road or some other simple block. Using lights and darks you could do any traditional blocks and it would still show up... or do a BOM type with several different blocks...try some of the Jennifer Chiavarini book series blocks.
As long as you have one repeating accent color/theme I'm sure anything would look fine.
Here's the site where I posted a quilt made with all purples. The picture in the magazine was all blues and I made a second one with all teals. I am now making one in all greens. I love the pattern and it would look good in any color! Just use a wide range of greens and it will be gorgeous!
I like the Storm at Sea & St. Patrick's suggestions! Keep us posted, I'm sure it'll be fantastic no matter what pattern you choose.
Pam's quilts all in one color are gorgeous!! It would look great in green, check out hers!!! WOW!!
I am also making a bear paws in all greens (I have way too many greens too!!) Here's the same pattern in blues and one in purples.
I was just looking at the French braid quilt book. If you have a variety of lights to darks, that might be a good pattern.
I would really like to see that Village Green pattern.
Thank you so much for the offer!
Marnie - Hopefully I'll have my computer back tonight (getting new hard drive) and I'll scan in it. If not tonight, it will be Thursday.
