Last month I shared my three forest green blocks for my Technicolor Turkey RSC17 project, based on Bonnie Hunter's Talkin' Turkey pattern. This time it's lime green.
I tried, but I was completely unable to resist using this Jolly Jungle fabric in the centre of all three blocks!
It is So Darn Cute.
There is not a lot of contrast between some of the limes and some of the backgrounds. But, I think other blocks have more than enough contrast to make up for it.
If you set the pattern with the darker colours, you will see it here too.
At least, that's my story and I'm sticking with it!

I've also been thinking ahead to next year already. I have a really crazy idea...
...and this is the first stage of deciding how it could work.
So far, it seems doable.
Of course, just because I can, doesn't mean I should...
...but so far, it seems to have legs.
It's a Really Crazy Idea.
. . . but will you?ReplyDelete
Really crazy is good. . .anything but would be drab and b o r i n g!!!! I like that sweet jungle fabric!ReplyDelete
Thanks Terry! It definitely won't be boring. In fact, pretty challenging, I think. But I'm also pretty sure it's a go.Delete
Your blocks with lime greens and jungle fabric are wonderful- so fun and happy!ReplyDelete
Bits of juvenile fabric lines are one of my favorite additions to quilts. Even when the rest is sophisticated, it still makes me smile. Love these little bits.ReplyDelete
There is even some PINK in your lime green blocks. Looking forward to hearing more about your crazy idea for RSC18!!ReplyDelete
As usual, I love your TT blocks! Like you, I’m thinking ahead to RSC 2018. TT is on my short list because I thought it might be wise to see if I can combine an RSC project while simultaneously knocking something off my bucket list.ReplyDelete
Great fabrics, great blocks. Super!ReplyDelete
Love those center squares - especially that monkey!ReplyDelete
And Really Crazy Ideas are the BEST ideas! (And that's MY story...)
Love the fabrics you used in your blocks. This is such a fun spray to use up the scraps!ReplyDelete
Love the jungle prints in the centre - they fit brilliantly with the limes, a secret discovery that makes you smile.ReplyDelete
I know, I think this quilt will be entertaining for many years, with all the little "finds" here and there in the blocks. Thanks, Jillian!Delete
That's the cutest bear I've ever seen. They all steal the show. BTW, I scrolled and saw your rainbow sketch a minute after I took pics of a gorgeous rainbow over our building. Maybe that's a sign?ReplyDelete
When you pulled back from that cute centre block, wow, what a great piece this one is! Wonderful work and anything is possible in your capable hands!ReplyDelete
Thanks very much, Jocelyn! I greatly appreciate the encouragement! :DDelete
Love the monkeys and the lime green turkey blocks. Something crazy? Sounds like fun to me.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't be able to resist that fabric for the center either! It's the added "smile factor".ReplyDelete
And I'm curious about your new project. So far I like the rainbow!
