Needle and Thread Thursday, Friends!

Happy NTT!  Before we get into this week's party, be sure you enter the four awesome giveaways provided by my ultra-generous sponsors.  One comment enters you for all four prizes, so it's not too time consuming.  You can do that right HERE!

In my continued effort to reduce my stash, I've been taking stock of each color to see where things are a bit thick, and going from there.  I'll bet if I gave you a single guess, you might be able to figure out which color was by far the most abundant in my cabinet.

Yep, greens of course!  Chartreuse, apple, lime, grass, emerald, jade, and kelly...I love all shades of green from the warmest to coolest, and had amassed quite an extensive collection.  This quilt contains 34(!) different green prints, and I wasn't even able to use every one in my cabinet.  I have to give a shout out to Janet at Simply Pieced for the pattern suggestion.  I knew I wanted to make a monochromatic green quilt without a background fabric, and she thought that a plus pattern would allow each fabric to be distinct within the quilt.  She was absolutely right, and I am loving it!

Last week's party had so many fantastic projects!  Katy Quilts shared this amazing throwback that she made in 2007.  Wow, it's just gorgeous!

Porch Swing Quilts finished this pretty kaleidoscope quilt.  Check out the adorable little strawberries on the corners!

and this beauty is from Myra at Busy Hands Quilts!

Okay then, friends!  Time to show off the latest happenings in your studio!

1.  You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Lots of very pretty greens. The plus pattern really does show them off.

  2. This is so bright and spring-like. Love all the greens.

  3. I definitely son't have that many greens in my stash but need to start gathering - I really like how this all came together!

  4. I just made a multi coloured green quilt as well. Just random patchwork, but I have enough squares left over to make another - maybe a plus. I was worried about the greens going together but it works if you use a wide variety.

  5. I love the green, it's also my favourite colour.

  6. What a great Quilt! It is easy to make, isn´t? Just cut squares. But it turns out so great! Olivia

  7. Green is my absolute favorite color! I love how your quilt turned out, might be a great way to use some of my stash as well!

  8. Green! *grabby hands* It's one of my favourite colours, so I have lots of it too. Love the pluses. :)

  9. Love your plus quilt! That's a great idea to do it monochromatically!

  10. Thank you for featuring my Brick Cottage Lane quilt! The pattern will be released tomorrow!

  11. Oh, you did such a nice job on the plus quilt, getting good contrast between each section. With all greens, it could have looked mushy, but it doesn't at all. My last plus quilt used lots of different colors, but there was too little contrast of scale and it all blurred too much. So I appreciate what you've accomplished!

    I'm not going to link up, because I haven't sewn a thing this week. I'm away from my machine, visiting friends. But I did add significantly to my stash, so it's been a good week :)

  12. Ooo, such gorgeous greens, beautiful finish!

  13. Green is definitely one of my favorite colors, too, and your plus quilt is gorgeous in green!


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
