    I "just" finished this green quilt top. It is for my friend who warned me 2 years ago, when I first started quilting, that she didn't like quilts and not to make her one.

    However, she has changed her mind, saying she doesn't like traditional quilts, but she likes my quilts. She selected the puzzle pattern (one I had done before and she liked) and she told me she wanted it all green with some green leaves. I emailed her pictures of the fabric and she okayed it. (She lives in Maryland. I am in Texas.)

    She is currently biking in France and won't be home for a week, so I can't send her a picture of it yet. (She turns 65 in two weeks, and I think this just became her birthday present...:) )

    So I need your eyes to "check it out." It is very green! At first I didn't like it, but now I do.

    Tell me it doesn't look like camouflage!!! (Yeah, I know, it sort of does...but I think she will like it.)

    You were very creative in the way you used the greens. I'm sure she is going to love it, nice job.

    If she ok'd the pattern and the fabric, she should like it. It does not look like camo to me...more like an abstract view of green pastures from the sky. Be sure and post after it has been quilted, that should add some hills and valleys. I am liking it! Wouldn't it be pretty draped over a table with a vase of fresh daffodils or red tulips on it! :)

    I really like it, I think quilting it will give it extra dimension. Quilting thread in different shades of green could look good. Please let us see it when you are done.

    I've never seen that pattern before. It looks like it was fun to do. I love green. I don't think it looks like camo at all. Your friend will love it. And by the way, biking in France! Talk about a lucky lady. First a beautiful quilt made by a friend and then a great trip.

    Thanks for your comments. The more I look at it, the greener it gets! The lightest green came off as sort of white in the picture though. The pattern calls for 9 fabrics, and she wanted all green. I have done the pattern in purple once, and then later in blue. I loved those quilts. Green is not my color, and she went for a brighter green than I thought she would...so it is just very green.

    I like the idea of it being abstract pastureland from an airplane. I will hold that thought.:)
