The Project Spectrum color for May is GREEN! (I even got into the postcard swap for May - I have a couple ides for a green post card... But I won't blater on about them lest I ruin the suprise. But I do need to get it done soon as we are going on vacation in a few weeks.)
Here is a green quilt that I made about 2 years ago: It is a "Bricks" quilt. The green rectangles are bricks that measure 2.5 x 4.5 inches the white parts are "mortar" and measure 1.5 x 4.5 inches. They really are only a glorified rail fence. I swapped quite a few "bricks" in the past. The can be udes for borders, sashing & there are other block formations that use bricks. I have another bricks quilt UFO that is scrappy (charm like with no two alike - was the plan) batiks and hand dyeds with black mortar. It will be set on point.
Here is a close up - quite obnoxious this big huh?
This quilt was made specifically for my husband back when he was just my boyfriend. He is a Rabid New York Jets fan, hence the green and white pallette. You may even be able to make out the officially licensed NFL fabrics. The back is Officially licensed NY Jets fabric as is the wrap over binding. I set it on point - I just prefer that "look" for this type of quilt.
New Project Spectrum quilt for May? I don't know with our vacation taking up most of May & with the fact that I am still in need of finishing last month's project (that will have green leaves)...
