RSC 15: week 19: One green star

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) is hosted by Angela at Soscrappy who gives some block patterns for a sampler quilt each month and also designates a different colour for the blocks each month. This month the colour is green.

There has just been one block so far this month:

Sawtooth Star inside a Sawtooth Star
Further this week I have been quilting the border of last year's Rainbow sampler.


Having quilted the centre of the quilt simply with large stippling, I went overboard on the border. now I'm sewing down the binding, all 8 x WOF! I hope to be able to show a finish next week.

I'm linking up to 
RSC 15

where you can see how others have used green this week.

Happy sewing

Marly.

Great border quilting design! And I like the "made fabric" center for your green star. I need to sort my scraps so I can play.Someday.

Amazing quilting. I can't wait for the reveal. Love the blue background on your sampler blocks. This one just rocks with that dark color.
