Here we are, back at Saturday and talking about Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. I have not yet checked out this week's scrappy green sharing, so I hope you'll grab some sweet tea and join me!
My inspiration for today's house was this Creole Cottage in the Faubourg Marigny. There are an abundance of lime green houses in New Orleans, but not many with purple doors and trim!
My lime green happy scrappy house.
I needed to use yardage instead of scraps to make this house. So as I was happily digging through the green fabric stash I realized I have a lot of OLD green fabric!
Some of it dates back to my earliest days as a quilter!
I decided it was time to do some serious stash-busting of green fabric.
What a great excuse to jump on the bandwagon and make a scrappy Trip Around The World quilt! I'm determined to make a huge dent in my green fabric stash. So far today I've put together 4 blocks, but I also started cutting strips so I can just pick six and start stitchin'. These blocks are quick to assemble and fun to play with. I'm heading back to the sewing machine to see how many more I can make today!
