Last week, the monthly post for Green: A Colour Blog Series went live, check it out as there is a great give-away open to everyone.

Introducing Anne Sullivan

I am so delighted to have Anne Sullivan from Play Crafts as a guest this month. Anne has been an inspiration to me and really helped me, find who I am as a quilter, by starting Quilt Design a Day. She is super talented, and if you are part of The Modern Quilt Guild you would recognize her Quilt of the Month entries: City Lights (Mar 2016), Phoenix Quilt (Sep 2015).  Her post is an interesting one, as she talks about her journey of discovery with green and how she now finds it a great supportive color.

Fabric Pulls for Green

Also in this post, I want to provide some fabric pulls of current choices people could have with the various greens, which I did not do in the last post. Let’s start by highlighting my two favorite fabric lines/collections that are my go to for green.

  1. Carolyn Friedlander: Not only does her lines usually include green but you can use her lines as a great color palette choice when trying to find other colors to go with green.

  2. Cotton and Steel: Produce great basics for so many colors. They have varying depth and range (forest green, bright green, mint, citron etc.), so I definitely like adding them to my green stash. (Prints available at Hawthorne Threads)

    I love green from deep forest to mint to lime and aqua. Thanks for adding the fabric selections. They get my imagination going.
