Default Two quilt tops, Same pattern

It's been a while but I finally have some thing to post. Our guild sponsored a mystery quilt on line, perfect for these times. Using only my stash, I wanted to use blues and browns but I really didn't have enough of any one fabric. As a consequence I used a tan from the back of the cupboard and made it work. Not my favourite. I massaged it a bit (ignoring the patterns fabric selections near the finish) and ended up with a quilt I can live with.
That said, I decided to do it all again using only Green. This one I love and I think you will too. Mono colours add an interesting twist. Both finished at around 78" sq.

I like both of your quilts and isn't it interesting how different quilts can look with different fabrics. great work

I like them both. They have different vibes and both are very effective with the color selection.

The green background with the leaves gives the whole quilt such movement - terrific fabric selections

The dark one is just so much more dramatic! Well done on both.

They're both neat. I think I'm partial to the green one though because the fabric choices give it so much movement. Good work!

You are a great massager! They both looked well planned and beautiful. I've been working on two quilts, both from my stash and I am so happy I have the fabrics, even though sometimes it was a stretch. Your quilts are beautiful.

I love both of the quilts the green one has so much movement but I also like the brown one, To me, it looks like an Indian pattern.. both are beautiful.
