Emerald stained glass
so scrappy is emerald green. Check out the other links, it's fun!
I have an overflowing green scrap bin, as I use a lot of greens in my quilts. Do you find you tend to make quilts in a certain color?
A lot of my quilts seem to be turquoise, fuschia, and green based.
Well, I can't say that... I love every color with beige being on the bottom of the choice heap.
I made the stained glass block again, this time with greens. Here are the other month's colors all quickly placed on the wall for a picture. Blue, pink, teal, purple, and green. The individual blocks will have black around each one in the end... I think. We'll see.
It's quite fun looking though for fabrics with movement, mixing pattern and shade to keep the feeling of a color while subtly mixing in others.
I seldom am able to keep to just one tone, it makes it flat to me.
The excitement comes in with light to dark, yellowish to bluish, an
unexpected splash of a totally different color within the base color.
BTW, the green scrap bin is still overflowing it's banks! Makes me feel rich.
