This week my Stay at Home Round Robin project has been taking up a lot of my creative thinking space, but along the way some bits of green have come out to play.
Green crumb blocks hiding underneath the round robin,
which has a little green in it, too!
I made a couple chandelier bead blocks, one in dark green, one in bright.
Also got a start on the bracket blocks for Full Stop, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge sampler for 2021. Thank you, Angela, for sharing these tutorials each month!
I've also been mulling over what kind of design I could use for my Table Scraps placemat this month, and pulled out these jelly roll strips in shades of green. These are part of a jelly roll that I won in a giveaway a few years ago, and I've been struggling to find inspiration for using them in a quilt. The other main color is purple/lavendar, plus there is (sparkly) gold in them. Just not my colors! But I might be able to make a fun placemat (probably more than one!) out of these.
Pulling all the green out has me thinking about how I'd really like to finish up the Rainbow Jungle, my RSC2020 project. It just needs a backing and to be quilted. There's another finish in the quilting queue ahead of this one, though! Maybe I'll get to it!

Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
How funny I had not noticed the green in your SAHRR quilt - and I love it! I need to get started on catch up today, but husband wants my ideas for yard landscaping. Outdoor work is beckoning!
You've got lots of green to play with this month. Looking forward to seeing what you decide on for the table runner.
Isn't it fun to knock out those RSC projects early in the month? Looking good!
So much to play with this month! I love green and purple together, and have made two quilts for my home in those colors. I know you'll come up with some way to use those great jelly roll strips.
the colors for your round robin look so nice - great greens
your small top is moving along and it is interesting to see where it will go next. Love the chandelier blocks - it reminds me of beaded curtains from the 70's
The Rainbow Jungle is so close to being done! It looks like you have lots of great green plans. Using up that jelly roll is going to feel great.
All your projects are beautiful and you look like you have been very busy this past week. Round robins are fun, as one do not know what the next person will sew on the next round.
Oh, how I hope you get to the quilting on your Rainbow Jungle, Diann!!
Love the green border for Rainbow Jungle! Woohoo for moving close to a finish. Your brackets look great. Your round robin is fabulous!!! Just keep sewing...
Making something for St. Patty's Day with the greens?
Enjoyed your Thursday post, Diann. Good on Mike to capture that beautiful eagle. Always thrilling to see the bigger birds. What great sky photos too. I especially liked your photo of you relaxing and looking happy.
Yes, green is a funny kind of colour. So many shades and many don't work with each other I find. Even making leaves can be a challenge for that reason. But always fun to play with them. Hope you two are having a good weekend.
Green is one of my favorite colors! I hop to get to the bracket blocks this week. And my OMG is calling. It has green in it too! Hope you get a chance to quilt your Jungle!
Rainbow jungle is looking great so far. I love all those colourful tiny trees together. Have fun with your greens this month, Diann.
Your Rainbow jungle is my favourite! Looking forward to seeing this one finished.
I do like those chandelier blocks, so will enjoy seeing their numbers grow. Curious to see what you do for a placemat, and always fun to see the Round Robin in all its cheerful colors!
I love the Round Robin, and all your nice green blocks. One of the things I like most about the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is using scraps I might otherwise have passed by. Your jelly roll strips will make cute blocks for a placemat--or for anything else you decide!
I'm glad to be reminded of your Rainbow Jungle- I plan to make it soon as an RSC-better get started! I am doing chandeliers also, year 2 of them, one per week, so I should have enough for a quilt by December. Cut all my green ones wrong, so that's the next step!
So much beautiful work and creativity!
Those really do look like chandelier drops! I think it will look great with your quilt.
You always seem to have a lot on your plate! I adore those chandelier blocks and can't wait to see what you do with them!
Love the greens -they sparkle :-) It was good to see the trees flimsy again. Have you picked out the backing and binding test?
Hmm, you've given me an idea. I love the Chandelier block, maybe I can play along with the monthly color by using that block. 2 or 3 a month would be no problem and in the end, maybe a quilt of some size? All looks great! Green is my fav, so this month I am loving the blocks everyone is making.
Oooooooh, love the jelly roll strips! They look pretty in the picture. Your SAHRR is looking really good under the needle too. I guess while you're finishing the quilting on project #1, you can be thinking about how you want to quilt the Rainbow Forest!
Lots of pretty greens Diann. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
That stay at home Round Robbin is dynamic! Love your green blocks too!
Love your chandelier blocks, very pretty! And your Round Robin is stunning!
What a fun happy sewing area you have - that SAHRR is turning out amazing! and all those greens! Love them!
