May greens for RSC 16

Each month Angela chooses a different colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and this month that colour is green.

I'm making bears' paws this year and here are my four green ones. After stepping in green paint these bears have all painted their nails black and white for a change! an idea I copied from @hoosiertoni and Jessica at Quilty Habit.


I've been making the HST's as leaders and enders while making other things, mainly 1930's Farmer's Wife blocks. I seem to be forever cutting black and white triangles, but all the rest is pretty effortless, unlike the FW blocks!

I'm linking to

Happy sewing

I love your version of the Bear Paw blocks, the look great. Years ago I started the FWPC and have quite few blocks done.

So creative with your illustration of the bear's paws! You have done some nice work. Those squares look very small.

Alison said...

Very pretty!

This arrangement of Bear's Paw is so dramatic. I'll have to add it to my wish list.

I really enjoy seeing your paws every month! And I'm really looking forward to the final setting of these blocks - it's going to be gorgeous!

You do so well arranging all those HSTs and squares, very subtle with the light greens.

This quilt is going to be amazing. Thanks for sharing your blocks with Oh Scrap!

Very clever use of your chosen colorway to be outlined in the black and white!

Vicki in MN said...

What a great look. Do you know how you are going to set these in the quilt?
