Green for May - Scrap Happy Saturday

I was excited to find out that Angela chose green for our color of the month in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  Green is one of my favorite colors, the color of Spring, and I'm looking forward to sewing with it this month.

A big part of my week involved getting my Scrap Jar Star quilt top (my RSC blocks for 2016) basted, and getting the quilting started. I've gotten quite a bit of the quilting done already, and I'm liking how my plan is working out!


Looking through my stash for more green to sew with, I found that I still have some of those adorable owls, so they will definitely be a part of my 2017 projects!  I found these mini Pearl Bracelets, too - they will be a great addition to my blocks this year.


I did have time to stitch up a maple leaf and a nine patch to add to the collection.  I love them - so fresh and pretty!


And a quick check to see how these blocks are looking, on the design wall - fun!


Looking forward to checking out all the green inspiration from the RSC quilters at the ScrapHappy Saturday link-up!

  17. I love that your center square even on the leaves is a feature. It ties the two block types together so well.

  22. I love your green fabrics (I had the owl one in hot pink/orange colourway, sadly all finished😕). Your RSC block choices are great, those maple leaf blocks look super.

  26. Can't believe you are quilting your Scrap Jar Stars already. And, yes, those owls look great with those greens. I never would have thought of alternating leaves with nine patches. I like it!
