RSC 15: week 18: the last purple hex and pulling green

Each month Angela at Soscrappy gives a colour and some sampler patterns and lots of people round the world use that colour: some to make the sampler blocks, others to work on other projects. In April the colour was purple. This month's colour is dark to medium green. On Saturdays we link up to show one another what we've been making in the last week. 

One more purple hexagon squeezed in at the eleventh hour last month and is looking forward to green. Maybe it's jealous? Anyway it's heart is with green.

That's the only green I sewed yesterday, although I did manage to pull out some small green pieces and a few (almost) fat quarters.
Because I'm using dark blue as my background fabric I can't use really dark green. This is as dark as I expect to go. I'm looking forward to piecing the sawtooth within a sawtooth star as soon as I've finished quilting RSC14 - border now under the FMQ foot.

I'm linking up to:

Sweet purple hexie flower. Love your green prints. I'm using all my green shades. Not worried as I have enough green scraps to play two months. Feels good to be working them up as they seem to multiply overnight.
