    I'm thinking Ocean Waves would look great in green as well as blues...wonder if I can find a link.

    Several years ago I did a scrappy "Thousand Pyramids" using only greens and tans.

    I love greens. I made a pattern called Faceted Jewels with all greans just mixed up and a cream colored background color. It was Gorgeous. I dont remember who the author of the pattern was by but you could use a search on the internet and find it.

    You didn't say what your skill level is, but I am doing a very simple "string" quilt using all purples. It is coming together nicely - even better than I thought it would.

    I would add some burgundys/purples and some whites/off-whites, but that's my taste. Does either of these quilts give you any ideas?

    How about a double or triple Irish Chain. It is a fairly simple block to do. It would be beautiful with all your greens.

    Thank you! I didn't really know what it would look like when I started it - very happy with it now

    How about an Irish Chain? I know it is an old, old pattern, but I have seen it in graduated Greens, and it was beautiful.
    Since it is almost a beginner quilt, you could make it in not a great outlay of time, and have a beautiful quilt--if you like Irish Chains!

    Here is a picture of my double Irish Chain done in greens and an off white...It is a fairly easy pattern, if you have enough contrasting greens, you could make a triple Irish Chain, that would look awesome.

    Since you have such a large stash of greens, how about the obvious and do a scrappy Tree of Life? Here's the link to an example (and it's done in green!!).

    What a surprise to find your question - just as I sat down and signed in. It's a coincidence because I just drove home, with "how can I make a green quilt, to cut down on my incredible stash of green?" on my mind. My mind said - try a 2"square nine patch (all green - scrappy) and then an 8" neutral made into a snowball block. Using greens for the corners, of course.

    I thought that with the larger neutral, the actual quilting (say, a feathered wreath) could bring one's eyes to the neutral patch, with the nine-patch squares, being a compliment to the neutral instead of overpowering ... make sense? I don't know, but it did to me. I think I'll try it. Or something on that order.

    OOOps, I made a mistake on my description of the size of the nine patch, I meant to say that the nine patch should of course, be the same size as the snowball block. I just got ahead of my self.

    A really good pattern for greens is the Eleanor Burns, summer porch pattern. It can be found in her book Quilting for the Seasons. I found it on the site QNN.com. It was so much fun, and using her methods, went together great. I too love green and might even make another using the extra triangles cut for the first one, a first for me. The overall size is easily resized.

    I have a really cute rag quilt made in the shape of a turtle. It needs 7 different green fabrics. It makes a quilt that is big enough for a young child.

    I made a Scrappy Mountains Majesties quilt for a friend who was moving from Oregon to Florida.
    Very easy and it looked fantastic.

    When I was young and my Grandmother was teaching me to embroider, she often said: "As in nature, all greens go together" I have always remembered that,so never worry about greens 'matching' when I make a quilt! I made a log cabin scrappy green quilt, with all one side of the cabin in greens,- from light to dark, the other side of the cabin, all beige. The center squares were red. To this day, it is still one of my favorite quilts I have ever made.
