It's not easy being green

Unless you are a quilter who loves reproductions like I do! Another of my favorites for this week's Stars in a Time Warp. I buy every piece of green calico I can find. I have quite a collection and I can't wait to make my stars! I love integrating these greens with other brights and some muted madders like this one that I donated to the Maine State Museum.

And this one which has an even more "Pennsylvania German" look which I donated to my daughter's friend who had staggering medical bills after an operation.


And I used a bit of it in this little "world piece" which I made a few years ago for the "New from Old" fund raiser for the Quilt Alliance. 


Now I need to make the stars!

  4. I really like the world quilt! Very little of that green fabric available in our area, unfortunately, so I buy it when I can too.

    1. The world piece was fun to do. I just printed it onto fabric and appliqued it onto the patchwork.

    1. Yes, although I am from Maine, I think I was secretly born in Pennsylvania!
