June Project Spectrum: a focus on green

Well, May came and went with very little red crafting. I am still working on the Hedera socks, but I am off to a slow start for Project Spectrum.

I've started brainstorming for June, the month of green.

PS Green

I created this mosaic (I just love making mosaics!) of some of my favorite green flickr inspirations. Please click through to see picture sources.

I hope to work more on this new quilting project:

New project

I'm making a Map of the States quilt. After trying this block back in February, I decided I would love an entire quilt of scrappy squares.

My inspiration started with the Magnolia Lane line, by Laura Gunn.

New fabric: Magnolia Lane by Laura Gunn

I love her bold florals, and especially the Painter's Canvas prints. I think they pair nicely with the other prints I've chosen. There's a little Kumari Gardens, Valori Wells, Amy Butler, and Joel Dewberry.

Moss Covered Rock

This picture I took in Berkeley last December is also inspiring to me. Ah, I wish it was as cool as that rainy day, instead of 100 degrees. Well, we can't have everything!

Have a great weekend!
