Green Scrappy Saturday



Yesterday's post was about the red bindings and today's is all about the green 2 1/4" Alamo stars. What's going on with all the Christmas colours in my sewing room!?!?

There were still a few leftover purple blocks from last month that I just finished up, and the rest are greens mixed with other batiks.

Green is such a welcomed colour this time of the year, but it has been so cold here (we had frost last night) that the garden seedlings are very slow to get growing. I started some seedlings in egg cartons this year, but look how pathetic they are.


Nothing is growing well, so plants can't go into the garden yet. 
But lots of green is being cut and sewn in my quilting room!

  3. I was late planting and now we have been having weather more suited for a little north of us but everything has been growing really well right now, plenty of wet!

  8. Beautiful blocks! We have been below normal too here in New Jersey - but things are starting to green up - outside and inside my sewing room too!

  12. Those are tiny blocks! My garden is growing gangbusters. But we are about a month behind this year. Still chilly for us for this time of year, but I am not complaining. Soon we will see triple digets and the air will run everyday.

  13. I've probably asked this before, but how many Alamo Stars do you have now? They are so cute and luscious looking!
    At least you have seedlings. I had every intention of doing that this year, but didn't remember in time. Happens every year! : )
