Green Squares

It's been like the green hills of Ireland around here this weekend!


It's time for the Week 3 link up for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, En Provence. Instead of Bonnie's purple four patch blocks, my flamingo-inspired colourway uses light and dark green instead.

For my simpler version of the quilt, I guessed that 100 blocks would be about the right number. Fifty have one square with flamingos on light green,

And fifty have one square with flamingos on dark green.

There are a few blocks where the flamingos were a little shy!


Overall, it's a lot of green. But, it's really nice to be working with a wide range of fabrics in colour this week! And I'm totally done! Whatever will I do with myself until the next clue?

In the meantime, please check out all the other mainly lavender-inspired squares at the link up here. Happy quilting!

  1. Oh my goodness I love your color change. What color will you be using for the greens later on in the quilt? It's so much fun to see all the different ideas for this quilt coming together.

  5. Those flamingoes look as if they are playing a game of hide-and-seek - either with themselves or with us. The green adds to this sense. It's looking great. I'm sure you'll find something to do while waiting!

    1. Yes, I had the same thought, with the flamingos gallivanting around in the tall grass. Thanks, Jillian! I have indeed found something else to work on. No shortage of projects around here!

  6. That flamingo print sure is fun and I agree with your comment about them being shy! Jillian commented about them playing hide and seek which is perfect! It is good that you don't have a shortage of projects to choose from while you wait for the next clue! Those greens are wonderful. What a terrific variety!

    1. Thanks, Terry! Green is my favourite colour, so I have a lot of green fabric. But surprisingly, most of it was too brown for this quilt. It seems like new fabrics have been shifting to bluer tones lately. It keeps things challenging!
