Last July when we went to visit, my mum had just been given a lot of beautiful quilt fabric samples from a sales rep who was retiring. The collection included Heather Bailey and Anna Maria Horner fabrics. The samples were all different sizes, but ranged from 12" x 12" to 18" x 24". There were lots of blues, greens and yellows.

Together we decided to make one blue quilt and one green quilt for the spare beds in her house. This post is about the green quilt - tomorrow I'll show you the blue quilt.
For the green quilt we decided to use a pattern from a Jelly Roll book - Stacks of Colour from Jelly Roll Dreams by Pam and Nicky Lintott. We went to a local quilt shop and chose the fantastic ombre green for the sashing. Doesn't it work well?
We made the quilt top in a couple of days, and mum then hand quilted it over the next few months.
The back is quite simple, but has the stripe for interest.
These quilts will be on the spare beds when we got to Auckland for the school holidays next week.
The pattern is Stacks of Colour by Pam and Nicky Lintott
The finished quilt measures 66" x 84"
