56 Shades of Envy
84 x 96
I started making these 12 Dandy Quilt blocks way back in 2014 when green was the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I then made more this year in May when green was the color of the month for the 2015 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I found I had a lot of small green scrap chunks so stars were born. I figured 56 Shades of Envy was a better name for the quilt than Spewing Green Chunks.
I arranged them from the lightest up in the upper left corner...
...to the darkest in the lower right corner.
There were lots of shades in between.
Most of the blocks look like this.
But in a few blocks I didn't have quite enough of the green chunk so the star is all made in the background fabric.
I quilted it on my DSM with straight and diagonal lines. I used variegated green thread on top and light green thread on the bottom. I had to do some quilting in the ditch and I really don't see well enough to stay in the ditch but I try.
The back is a wide dark green solid. The binding is made of more green scraps.
Take another UFO off the list!
