Scrap Blocks in green

The new color this month in the Rainbow Scrap challenge is evergreen. I rooted through the green scraps and strings to find a set of darks at least 15" long
a set of lights same length
What fun!

The mary engelbreit print, the big flowers, the vintage dots!

Right near the middle is a scrap of yardage I painted for a border, and it's much more vibrant in person.

Something has gone awry with my camera...

I've told you how I make these in previous posts but you start with two blocks, one light one dark.








And here are the five 20" blocks so far.

I figure I will quilt them then join with black strips.

That should make a great size quilt.

  17. Leanne, I've been "nosing" around your blog and love your studio! I want to come (wherever you are) and play! I got so distracted by the studio posts that I almost forgot to come back and leave a note. lol (so very me) These squares are gorgeous. The colors look great together. Thanks for the virtual tour of your studio. I do love seeing into other's creative spaces.

  28. Oh, LeeAnna, these are lovely. Isn't it funny that we worry about arranging strings when grouping by color and value makes such a beautiful block? This is the perfect month for this color. New life!
