From Blue to Green

I hope to get this quilt sandwiched tonight, but with the rainiest March in decades followed by the cloudiest April in 150(!) years, I had to jump out in the sun for a couple shots today.  Seriously, it's supposed to rain tomorrow afternoon and all next week.  I am SO ready for 80's and sun - DONE with spring.

The wood grain should really be on the left, but it was windy and we were crazy busy today with Kenton going off on another weekend away for lacrosse, so I wasn't going to have Mark flip the quilt top around.

See, it's the plus shaped log cabins inside one BIG log cabin.  The cream round of logs are two different linens.  LOVE linen in a quilt.

I like the back as much as the front!   Loosely following Kati's fun tutorial, I only sliced vertically, and was able to use up a bunch of the solids left over from the top.  And I was feeling kind of twitchy without any white in a quilt, so two big strips ended up on the back.

I can't wait to quilt this - I'm going to change up my standard all-over stipple a bit!

I had asked before, but I was a no reply blogger, (unknowingly) could you share which colours of green you used for this quilt? It is wonderful :)
