All the In-Betweens and NTT

Greens that lean blue, blues that lean green, and every shade in-between! That's the criteria I used for pulling the fabrics for my latest quilt, which is now a finished quilt top.  Aqua, teal, turquoise, jade, mint, and so many more cool shades make this quilt a fresh wash of color.

There are an equal number of solid and print fabrics, and I paired them together to make these six-inch bowties.  Then, I alternated the solid and print bowties in the layout, and I love the effect.

I got all of the leftovers turned into a cool pieced back and basted it (I can't wait for you to see the back side).  And there were even enough scrap strips for a pieced binding.  I used thirty six fabrics in this quilt, with hardly any scraps added to my jars.  And once again, I didn't have to buy a single bit of fabric.  This quilt didn't completely eliminate this color in my stash, but it's pretty close.

I'd love to get this one finished up in short order, but that is not going to happen.  We are leaving for vacation this weekend (yay!), and the rest of the week is set aside for housecleaning, laundry and packing.  It will just have to wait until I get back.

On that note, NTT will be taking a break next week!  

Before we get to the party, check out some highlights from last week. This sweet star quilt is from Anne-Marie at Stories From the Sewing Room-

This cute quilt is from Jocelyn at Happy Cottage Quilter-

Maggie at Making a Lather showed off this lovely finish-

And finally, I love this cheerful quilt from Something Rosemade-
