    Fabulous use of greens and whites. Love it. Can you tell us who printed this book as when I went out to look for it, a number of books popped up. Some say 96 blocks, some say 111 blocks.....some from the 20's, some from the 30's.....so hard to tell which book. A pic of your book would be helpful too. When you said paper pieced, I was hooked.

    Absolutely stunning quilt! Please give us the name and author of the book you used. I can't find one that has paper-pieced block patterns. Thank you.

    Green is my favorite color. I love your sampler. It is beautiful. When you no longer want the quilt, you can throw it my way. Hehe.

    Beautiful quilt! Congratulations on being the Quilt of the Week. Definite winner.
    I gifted this book a few Christmases ago to a quilting relative. I was hoping she would use/browse and then lend it to me. I may just have to ask to borrow.

    Beautiful quilt and love how you kept the green theme. You did such a wonderful job on the blocks and 53 is a lot of blocks. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous quilt with us.

    I don't care for FW quilts so I guess that's how I missed this the first time; but, I missed a beautiful quilt. I especially like the layout and color and quilting. Really just everything about it. Well done!

    Gorgeous! Green is my favorite color and with a white background it just sings out to me.

    You did a fabulous job...what a stunning quilt. I love your collection of green fabrics, they pop nicely with the white.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I have this book but was nit entirely happy with the fabrics used, even though I do like the 1930s fabrics usually. It never occurred to me to choose a single color with lots of different fabrics to sew the blocks. I am totally in love with this quilt. Thank you so much for a beautiful quilt and a great inspiration for me.

    Exquisite! Altogether, these blocks are like emerald jewels against the white back ground.
