50 shades of green













I do love the lush greenery of the month of may. And how it displays itself in 50 shades of green.

This top is 63" * 63" and I am planning to quilt it by machine. My first attempt at trying out the fun Quick Curve Ruler. Finishing the top in mid may, it really mirrors the wonder that is happening outside my window in the south west corner of Norway. My favourite season and the prettiest time of the year around here.

The idea for making a green version of the pretty pattern Chic Country by Sew Kind of Wonderful has been on my mind for a while.

As a quilter I am inspired by colour, and take this opportunity to enter my 50 shades of green in the Pantone Quilt Challenge 2017 : Greenery.

Hi Marit! This looks gorgeus! I love this pattern and have started it long ago but never managed to finish. All the greens, water turquoise etc. colours makes this really beautiful! x Teje

Love this pattern in greens, and you are so right about it looking like spring. I'm ready to cut one in grey and white (actually, I have had the fabrics ready for a couple of months :D) and I think this is the push I needed to get the cutter out. Thanks!

I love every quilt you make, and this is no exception! Been wanting to use this pattern and the quick curve ruler, but it seems a bit complicated maybe? Although I'm sure it goes faster than with templates. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!

Gorgeous! Great to have a new post from you! I always hope you're ok when there is a long gap between posts, and I am always happy to see a new one! Thank you for inspiring me/us! I, too, would love to know your thoughts on working with that ruler. I bought one a couple of years ago but have never tried it.

This is absolutely lovely! I adore color challenges and your usage of this pattern emphasizes the value and tonal differences so well. Just wonderful!

Wonderful! The movement in this quilt is great, and the many greens help to keep it calm and fresh. Another beauty!!
