Green. Really green.
Restful, fresh, invigorating green. Using lots of Kona jelly roll scraps and my teetering pile of green fabrics to conjure a quilt for grandpa.
Tomorrow is our annual Halloween Harvest Party. We're expecting 40 people as we've invited Aria's entire 2nd grade homeschool co-op class. All week I've been working on party details while the house gets !painted! and a new, respectable look emerges. I've even been inspired to do some yard work! Y'all know that's digging deep.
These simple green blocks have been a nice treat for a (mentally) busy week. I have no idea what the block is called, but it's so simple that it seems like it must "be" something. My inspiration came from this quilt, favorited in 2010. Anyone recognize the block? They totally have me craving mint chocolate candies. Like those Andes mints. Mmm... If someone doesn't cough up the real name, this block is going to sound tasty....
Also... don't forget to stop by Jolene's at Blue Elephant Stitches for her post on Value Dynamics today. Pretty fun to see how much value can transform a quilt!
