Green Fabric for This Garden Loving Quilter

Green has to be important to a quilting gardener!




Since that is what I proclaim to be I have plenty of green in my scrap box and stash that I'm all set for the month of March in soscrappy's challenge.  Pay a visit to her blog to see how other quilters have unique ideas to eat up their fabric scraps.


So far I've located my smallest and most forgotten about green scraps, ironed them, and organized them for a photo. 



Now I need to get some plans in place.  I know I will make a set of 4 string pieced blocks.  I love doing it on recycled computer paper so that they finish at 8 inches.  I am on a roll with those fun to make string blocks for each monthly color so I must get sewing with my green bits.

Don't forget the fabric the frog has! I think a lot of us are in the mood for string blocks this month, have fun! I'm also a gardener and can't wait for Spring!

I loved that - "ironed them and arranged them for a showing." Great greens to use, and I hope to see what you make from them. Loved the fractal at the top!

Great idea - recycling computer paper! I was using the many many catalogs you get in the mail. And yes - love that frog! He loves all that green!
