it is not easy being green ...

Is it not funny my center block looks the same color as the wall? or is it just my favorite color?
well it is finished, now I have to find courage/energy to start working on the borders. Luckily for me there will be not much space left for quilting the CWB. Just some outlining I think. Enjoyed working on this quilt so far, I used as much as Kaffe Fassett fabrics as possible. It has been a treat.


  1. congratulations to this unusual and very beautiful finish,happy stitching,susi

  2. I love your bright and happy quilt. The use of Kaffe's fabrics is just delightful. I look forward to seeing your borders.

  3. It is gorgeous, and I am glad someone else has used a coloured background.The Kaffe fabrics really sing, well done.

  4. Ineke,

    this is simply great! The perfect combination of old pattern and up-to-date materials. A greta look and the green background looks so relaxed and easy... Wonderful!

  5. Ineke,
    What a wonderful lovely quilt! I am only now learning to appreciate bright colorful fabrics (I tend toward the 1880 repors) and your quilt provides such inspiration for these colorful fabrics. Well done.

    I too have just started my borders. I have almost completed one side and I found that once I started them, it was easier to keep going.

    P.S. I also love the fish and water lily!

  6. I love this bright, colorful, happy version of this quilt! So lovely! I can't wait to see your borders.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  7. I adore your polka dot ponies. Thanks to your inspiration, I used Kaffee Fassett fabrics in a couple blocks. My background is also green, albeit so pale that it looks white in pictures. Great job!
