Rachel searched out and found a solid that was very very close - Pure Elements Emerald. Green prints I added in my grouping were Lizzy House jewels in dark green and the pearl bracelets in Swiss chard. But it was Art Gallery oval elements in emerald that helped me decide on the rest of my palette, the addition of black and white. So you'll see some of my favorite black and white prints, plus for something a little different, I used just a bit of white Essex Linen and green Dupioni silk, both of which added some nice texture.
Somewhere along the line I decided to multi-task, and rather than make a quilt, chose to make placemats, a project that's been on my list for a while.
I made three sizes of wonky cross blocks. Unfinished, they were 3 1/2", 6 1/2", and 9 1/2". I put the same size assortment in each mat, mixing up their placement, and of course, the colors and fabrics.
Linking up with the Emerald Quilt Challenge and Finish it up Friday.
