Did you participate?

Our Lime Green project has come to an end. If you pieced a top or blocks according to the guidelines that you’d like to send in for completion, please comment and I’ll forward the mailing addresses on to you.

I’d like to share one of the tops I received from Karen during the project that is now completed and ready for donation. As you can see, she chose a very coordinated look by using a limited number of fabrics and it works well.
