I love green and I am sew thankful for my green fabric scraps. I had a
few ton of them and I made this Irish Blessings wreath several years ago. You just cut your scraps into various width rectangles (I used a pinking blade) and tie them around a wire hanger (from JoAnn’s I think, but you could use a coat hanger too). I found the Irish Blessings sign at Michaels. Easy peasy.
Have you ever noticed how green goes with everything? I was taking pictures in my yard yesterday (because it was such a beautiful day in California) and all of the flowers pair beautifully with green – naturally! Take a look at green and yellow:
And of course there’s green and pink:
And just a little bit of blue forget-me-nots to go with green and friends:
And my favorite – green and purple:
I think we can always find inspiration from nature and it certainly was true when I made my Purple Pansy Quilt:
Sew thank you Mother Nature!
I have been a fan of Virginia Lindsay, the creator of Gingercake Patterns, since the first time I saw her Lucky the Elephant pattern. Today until March 22nd, she is having a sale on her Modern Folksy Bunny Pattern. I think it’s as cute as can be and just in time for Easter! Thank you Virginia for the great deal!
Today I am sew thankful for the free patterns available from Riley Blake Designs. I recently saw this cute pattern called Summer Dance and if you go to their free quilt projects page, you’ll find many more!
Thank you, always, for joining me in my appreciation of other’s online contribution to the art of quilting and crafting and my appreciation of life in general (go mother nature)!
