Saturday in green.

This week I was able to make my two snails trail blocks in green. I love how these blocks are coming out so far. I went with an olive green one and a dark green this week. There are so many shades of green it was a tough choice. Lime really wanted to play too but I had more of these in scraps.
 All of my snails so far this year - pink, purple, orange and green.


I also got another green and black 64 patch block made this week.

Today after dropping the kids off to Grandma I am going to be busy quilting that 9 patch and hourglass quilt! I have the brown binding all set to go on after it is quilted. After that is done... I'll either go through the box of scraps and pull greens out so I can prep my grape peels for this month or prep the backing and pin the Quilt of Valor quilt so I can try and get that one quilted today too. I decided stars and loops for that one. If the flowers and loops work well on the 9 patch I'll try and get this one quilted today too. I just love the border fabric I found for this. Isn't it great? I am using that blue fireworks fabric for the backing and binding too. I just love 50% off coupons from Joanns Fabrics. It was not the fabrics I had in mind when I went shopping but I think it was an even better choice than what I was thinking originally. I love when that happens.

Head on over to SoScrappy's blog and see what other green projects are being worked on today.

  1. You've been busy! The snails trails blocks look so good together. The interlocking shapes really draw in the eye. Can't believe your patriotic quilt is already to the quilting stage. Enjoy the stars and loops. Variations on a theme can go on forever. Flowers and loops are fun too, and double loops......

  3. I love those snails trails blocks ... how big are you making those blocks? Isn't it wonderful to go shopping and find something that works better than what we had in mind - especially if it's on sale! ;-)
