Going Green!!!!

Using up stash is a great feeling. Backing/binding fabric was the only purchase I made for this family reunion "raffle" quilt. Green is a versitile color: can be feminine or masculine, green in nature is pleasing, it doesn't offend, is not over bearing, it feels fresh! The only drawback to GREEN is that green and envy are friends. However, I don't think anyone was envious of the winner of this quilt. Many did admire and comment favorably over the green quilt and helped to tie the knots with Green Pearl Cotton, and at $0.50 per chance, the names were placed in the basket. The winner...the family member who had 40 chances in with with a $20.00 bill. (Yes, she did write her name 40 times on 40 little pieces of paper.) All total there were 24 other names in for the drawing. This gave the maker of this quilt a little wiggle room to purchase the needed batting and thread. Enjoy the greens from my stash and my favorite color! "MY JEALOUSY" (Natalie Merchant is a favorite artist of mine and I am jealous of her talent.) has been shipped off the lucky Sandy in Sandyeggo, CA. ~~Take Care.

Yo mama! Sweet quilt. Wish I could have been there to put my name in for the drawing. But I guess I'll probably have plenty of chances to get a homemade quilt from you. Probably for free! J/K.
