Color Poetry: Green

Are you the same as me, that you almost feel as if you are walking just a little bit lighter when you first start seeing those spring buds appear everywhere? It's no secret that green is my favorite color, or that spring is the season where I feel the most alive. I would say that it is more than obvious where my color affections lie when you look at the projects I've been working on this week.

Backing for my Penny quilt? Check. I'm hoping this will go rather quickly... especially since I am using this method to baste it.

So far I have been able to sew all the leaves for my Green Smoothie quilt either from scraps or fabrics in my stash. I realized that I needed to add some additional prints to really give it the depth and variety that I am wanting. And besides... adding more greens to my already green heavy stash is just so much fun!

It's been helpful to me to lay this out on the bed to see the progress that I've made.

It's been on my wish list now for far too long to make some new curtains for our bedroom.... why does it take so long to motivate me to do a little practical sewing?!? Tja, I guess because it is not very creative, but wow... did these light colored curtains ever make a huge difference in the room.

April showers bring May flowers... what are your spring projects?

Linking up to Let's Bee Social and Sew Cute Tuesday


  1. Love all the greens and especially the leaves for your Green Smoothie Quilt.

  2. Spring is my second favourite season after autumn, there is something about the way the air smells, and the thought of a long season ahead of warm days and long summer nights. But who am I kidding, I'm in the northeast of the UK so it will be damp days and a cold wind like the last few. Never mind, if I can't get outdoors at least I have an excuse to stay in a sew.
    Love your new curtains.

  3. That curtain fabric is fabulous! Everyone is bemoaning the fact that the dandelions are arriving in their yards...but I think they are rather pretty ;)

  4. Just loving those leaves!! Thought spring had arrived here and turned off the heating a month ago but winter has come back - snow, sleet, hail and freezing rain .....

  5. Your green Smoothie Quilt will be a masterpiece and it will look wonderful in your bedroom with the lovely new curtains!

  6. I *love* the fabrics you chose for your star blocks. I have a set of Tiger Lily and have been thinking of making an all-Tiger Lily quilt but the way you've mixed in those subtle greens has really got me thinking!

  7. Your curtains are so fresh and spring like - they are perfect for the room.
