I almost forgot to show this quilt, but after doing the quilting posts this weekend about Island Batik and GO quilts, I remembered this quilt and couldn’t find it on any blog posts and I remembered that I had submitted it to a magazine and it had gotten turned down and I just forgot to blog about it. (Usually I just submit EQ sketches but this one I really liked so I decided to make it regardless of what their reply would be.
I named it GO Green and made it into a pattern but still need testers!
If you’d like to be a tester for this one and others, comment below
it’s 52 x 66” and I used the GO 4” kite and 4” triangle in a square dies plus 2 1/2” square dies and 2 1/2” strip die, but the pattern also has templates and rotary directions.
I used “ugly” greens for the backing- a way to be GREEN literally!!
here’s a close up of my quilting on the back
and it goes well with our green couch
I tried a funky stitch on the binding and something new for quilting on the sashing too
Let me know if you’d like to test it
it uses 3 light and 3 dark greens 1/2yd each and 2 1/4yd grey
