Design Wall Monday

This was actually finished at my quilt retreat last week but I wanted to show it completed. I am very happy with how it turned out. With the help of my friend Kerstin, there are over 100 different greens in this quilt. I realize some might look brown but they really are all green.

Design Wall Monday

The same blocks are on the design wall but with lots of progress made. All the nine patches are made and the rows are sewn together. Need to cut the setting triangles and some two inch squares to make the borders. At this time the quilt does not any two same green blocks. That will change as I still need about 27 additional setting triangles. As I only need a 7 3/4" square to make it the triangle and two 2" squares, my friend Kerstin, who is the inspiration for this quilt, said I could come raid her stash of green fabric so I can have more variety. The first picture is an over all of how it's looking. The second picture is the bottom right hand corner that has the corner sewn together. I can not wait to raid Kerstin's stash and finish it. It's been fun to make.
