Chartreuse It Is!

Thank you for all the many wonderful color suggestions in your comments on my last post.  There were so many good ideas!!              Some colors I would never have thought of…

I took my 16 patch blocks to the local quilt shop and laid them on all the solids they had.  One color really screamed my name… and it was a color I’ve never used before and actually had to look up how to spell it!!

  3. I def. like the sorta-limish-goldish-coolish color :) Very fun with all these other prints and colors. I would have gone with a pinkish/purpleish color but I always do - so I'm glad you think outside the box more than I do :)
