A Little Green Quilting

I am always happy to join blog hops with Carol from the Just Let Me Quilt blog. This month she has chosen the theme “Little Green Apples” for the blog hop! There are many bloggers participating, showing everyone what they’ve created using the color green. You’ll find the list of blogs to visit a little further down in this post.

Do you have scraps? I’ve been designing some patterns to help scrap-savers use those scraps. This is my newest pattern. It’s called Waves of Color. I chose green scraps to make this lap quilt. In the past, I’ve used blues and various batiks. My next quilt will use some large Christmas floral fabrics I have.

This is SO EASY to make—no special rulers or tools to purchase! The size of the blocks can be changed to use any size of fabric scraps or cuts you have. This would be fun to sew with friends and trade scraps as you work!

A Few More Green Projects:

I gathered photos of a few other quilts I’ve made using green fabrics. I have more, but these were close at hand to post.

Spring-Time Jewels

This is 9″ x 15″ and is the sample I made for the class I taught at our local library last Saturday. The green squares make the gorgeous colors of the batik “quarter square triangle” blocks pop!

Cabin Leaves Table Runner

The Cabin Leaves Table Runner was such a delight to design. It is the most popular of my Cut Loose Patterns and can be purchased at your local quilt shop, or you can order online from the Cut Loose Pattern website HERE.

The Green Hedge

An article by Bill Kerr, describing how to use scrap strips as backgrounds for quilts, gave me the inspiration to make this wall hanging. I used some of my green scraps to sew the background hedge for the scrappy flowers I made. Artificial flower leaves were sewn amongst the flowers. The binding is made from green scraps. I hang this during the Spring and Summer months.

  1. Beautiful quilts Nancy. Waves of Color just makes those greens dance. I don’t think I knew you were Cut Loose Patterns. That Cabin Leaves runner is just gorgeous! Good to see you again!

  2. Wonderful projects. Each one is fabulous though the Cabin Leaves Runner might be my favorite. Each belong in this hop.

  3. All of your projects are beautiful! I especially love the Cabin Leaves, I will be adding that pattern to “must make” column.

  4. Waves of color looks like a fun project. I may need that one for sure. Thanks for the parade of green, all are amazing!

  5. I love your Waves of Color…it’s beautiful! I’m not a scrappy quilter, but that quilt makes me want to start digging around for small fabric pieces. Love it! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Your projects are great for this hop and terrific to keep in mind for future scrappy plans. I love tips on using our bundles of scraps and your first quilt design is so lovely. I really like those waves but am not sure I could pull it off. I’ll have to bookmark this and give it a try one day soon. I adore all scrap quilts and yours’ look unified and shall I say, dignified. Thanks so much for the great share.

  7. You do like green, and so do I. I like your new pattern, and am so glad you shared it. I always enjoy sharing scraps with friends, and some of us even do it by mail! I’m making a potato chip quilt right now with pieces cut and sent by a friend in California in my Christmas box. It is so much fun to have them already cut, and have a project for which they were perfect! And not my usual things.
