    I had a truck load of green fabric and used a good part of it in this quilt top. Of course I went and bought a 1/4 yds of a couple too. I already have plans for another one.

    Beautiful! Love the colors. I'm not up to stash busting yet. Got a lot of actual projects I need to get done.

    Thanks for the good words. I saw the quilt Shadow had made and asked her how she did it.Using her method I used a base of unbleached muslin cut 10" square measured it diagonally and then marked a line 1" to each side of the center. I cut all my strips of green 1 1/2 to 2 " and started sewing. The middle is the base fabric showing. After I was done with all the squares I squared them up to 9 1/2 inch. I have never made anything that went that fast. If this isn't clear mail me direct and I'll try to make it more clear. Thanks Shadow for sharing your talent with us all.

And yes I still have green left but my sister liked it so she is going to take most of it for hers.
