    I want to make a quilt for my boyfriend eventually. So I've been collecting green quarter yards (he likes green a lot). But I have no clue what to do with them all yet. I think with all the quarter yards that I've been getting it'll most likely be something scrappy.

    Got ideas?

    I made my granddaughter a green/black quilt for her birthday - it is in the mail now. So excited to know how she likes it. Green/black are her 2 favorite colors. You could do it with all greens thoug using light and dark for contrast.

    I looked on Google. It seems like no matter how many quilts I look at none of them are "the one" for Joe. I had a few ideas of my own, but as soon as it got in my head I rebutted the idea. The only thing I haven't immediatly denied is a design I'm working on called "Diamond Plate". I'm still unsure about it, though.

    if there's decent contrast between them, you could do a Yellow Brick Road quilt or any other FQ quilt pattern.

    Here's a scan of the fabrics I got so far. The colors are a little dull in the pic. I thought I had more green fabrics than this. Might be because I'm buying more fabrics than I usually do and therefore thought I had got more of the green?
