Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Green Week 1
Green is one of my favourite colours and if you looked at my stash you would certainly know it! I have so many scrap pieces that when I made these blocks I didn't have to repeat any green fabrics at all. Included in these scraps are pieces of fabric that had belonged to my sister-in-law, Wanda. She was my husband's older and only sibling and she passed away in 1998, waaaay too young at only 51 years old. She had quite a fabric stash which I inherited and I do try to use fabric from her stash as much as possible. I am very grateful and honoured that I was the one to receive it. Naturally, a lot of those fabrics are what I would classify as oldies but goodies! I bet you can easily identify a few of them - just look at some of those shades and prints. Like many other participants in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge I intend on making a quilt from blocks I make each month. I saw a picture of a throw in magazine - Sew Scrappy Volume Two - designed by Sherri McConnell and you can see a picture of it here. I thought it looked great and would work perfectly for my Rainbow Quilt. If you hop on over to SoScrappy's you can see what other participants worked on this week.
