My friend's birthday was this weekend. Her husband asked if I would make a quilt for her several months back. Her favorite color is green. I think the greens blended nicely. I tried to stay in away from the yellow greens and more on the blue green side.
The back is pieced with all the fabric I had left over, including 3 left over sister's choice blocks I didn't use on the front. I machine quilted it with my walking foot across each block diagonally and then in the ditch. The final size was somewhere around 86"x 94". The first border is organic cotton and most of the natural as well. I bought a few yards of batik and other greens, but the majority is from my stash, which was mostly handed down to me by the lovely ladies in my quilting group.

Too long since my last post. I've been working on a few projects. This one for quiltsforkids.org. They send the kit with all the fabric and you just sew it up and quilt as desired. It's an easy and meaningful project for a good cause.
Also another big project that is completed, but I can't post until next week.
