I was thinking about a scrappy quilt - using lighter greens of a similar shade and hue or 30's prints would look really good, too. I also agree with it being a bit fussy with all those little snowballed corners, but I may give it a try someday down the list.
    Love the idea of 30s fabrics.

    I rather like this one. Yes it is a bit fussy but I have a bunch of white 2-1/2” squares and a whole lot of jelly rolls That need a purpose. I also made those quarter square triangles by accident while making a sampler quilt last fall. I mixed up in my mind Jenny’s crazy 8 method of making HSTs and her method to make 4 HST. Quarter square triangles is what I got. I agree the green is a bit intense but it goes with the jelly roll she chose. this would be a quilt where I would work on it a little bit at a time.

    I was thinking shades of purple, like mountains...not sure about this one. Lots of pieces to cut and lots of snowballing.

If I ever get to this one, it will be a while. I have too many other patterns in the queue, as well as too many UFOs.
    I thought of Summer Breeze for this too!

    those with camera phones take a picture, then go into edit picture on your phone,
    your looking to use the slider to change 'hue' . The colours all change. its up to you if save or not, personally I dont.
    hopefully this method does not upset anyone, but does help choosing quilt colours its not an exact process but gives an idea. it is amazing how colours change quilts.

    This one doesn't speak to me, so I will wait and see what lovely creations everyone comes up with.

    I would like the top of each block quarter squares be sky colored, lol. Either the green is a bit strong or it would be more my style with less of it. I think you could make half of the qst in green and half in light blue and the layout would work out ok.

    I also had the same thought of using a light blue! It would really change things up!

    Me too, Monique, met too!
    I can't believe I missed a MSQC Tutorial until later on in the day! I am so hooked on Jenny's tutorials that I wake up EVERY Friday at 1am....I think this is only the 3 time I haven't watched the newest tutorial as soon as it comes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Annika, you are so sweet to post the new tutorial each week when they first come out for Night Owl's (like me) who wait patiently for the newest video to begin!!!! Every Friday morning, I'm up and running to the PC to watch my FAVORITE quilt (Jenny). My friends think I'm nuts. Oh well, there's worse things to get addicted to right? I love fabric WAYYYY tooo much for sure!
    Thanks so much Annika!
