Inspired: True Green

May's do. Good Stitches {A Charity Bee}'s project in the Hope group is a sampler quilt using 'true green' (not pastel) with touches of white, gray, and black.

This is a bold color combination and I really like the energy! It is a naturally occurring combo (kiwi, green apples), and can either be casual or formal depending on the patterns and use of colors. This combination can be feminine or masculine which I think is really nice because it's tough finding fabric combinations that work for guys.

What fabrics you might ask? Today's fabrics were all found at fabricworm.com. Unfortunately I couldn't make a mosaic because they have opted out. I'm not sure why...it's free advertising right? Oh well, here are a few of my favorites in this colorway:
