Green - Saturday - #7 - 8 -

First - I hope everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas - 

I spent mine very quietly sewing - 

And made quite a bit of progress -
Thursday I sewed the last two sets of blocks - 
For my Upstairs/Downstairs - Christmas - GREEN -  

And yesterday - 
When I had a pile of blocks - 
I couldn't wait to start webbing it - 

So - 

Since you have all been SO patient - 
Here is the final top - 
Ta Dah!! - 

 And here it is upside-down - LOL - 

I tried a "collage" for the first time - below -
So you could compare the RED one on the top - 
To the GREEN one on the bottom -  
I like how the RED in the bottom photo - 
Refuses to let the GREEN be dominant - LOL - ;))
Both tops have the SAME fabrics - from identical jelly rolls -
Both tops have the SAME fabrics in the SAME strata - for the blocks - 
Both tops have the SAME blocks in the SAME order - for the layout -
The ONLY difference between the two tops is -

The placement of the two RED strips and the two GREEN strips - 

Were REVERSED when I sewed each strata for the second one - 

This pattern never ceases to amaze me - 
I like the surprise at the end - 
I really don't know how some of these are going to turn out - 
Until I see them done -
And that's always FUN - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

They do look different. The design appears differently. It is amazing. I can't believe you got the whole thing sewn. Color and value are everything. Congratulations on the red/green experiment!

Both are lovely and very festive!

Katie said...

Oooohhhh! I like both, but I think the one with red stripes is my favorite. (Don't tell green!)

Barbara said...

WOw! I could never easily decide which way to go. Love them both! Beautiful!

Gene Black said...

Yes that red seems to just take over. Both the red and the green versions are pretty. Have you considered putting them together to make a giant quilt?

Jennifer Gail said...

Wow! Really pretty both ways.

The new green one looks like a garden patch with patches of red flowers. Both are great!

They are both fabulous and different. They're the chameleons of the quilt world!
