I took my scrap box and went thru it looking for light and bright greens. Most of the bright greens were set in dark backgrounds so I stayed away from them for now.
The remaining greens had a lot of other colors included, but I decided to just go with it. This set of fabrics started as cut offs from long ago projects that I don't even remember now. I'm guessing some Block Lotto blocks - but who knows?
Trimmed as the others have been to 12.5 inch square.

Have you seen the Postcards from Sweden QAL? Louise from the QuiltOdyssey is doing it and it looks like such a pretty project. Guess I'll be adding it to my list of things to do... But I know that I'm also going to need to be working on gathering things for the tax preparer so it will be my reward to myself to work on the the Postcards from Sweden quilt /after/ I have found and recorded what needs to be done for that first.
Last week I online attended a demo by the Emily Tayler AKA The Collage Quilter about the technique she teaches. Amazingly appealing.... The Felicity Quilt is so beautiful...
And Teresa from TeresaDownUnder has a very nice tutorial on attaching quilted blocks together with two inch (or any size) quilt as you go sashing.
It's been colder than usual here and I'm finding it difficult to keep to plans for doing paperwork. Today I did manage to eat a bunch of peanut butter and watch a few episodes of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend". It's silly/sweet/sad but it's fun to hear the mentions of streets and things in West Covina - where I was raised! I'm up to Year 1 #11 - "That Text Was Not Meant for Josh!". And I did sew the one block for the RSC...
