I used the weathervane block variation that Patch the Giraffe used for this beauty with a different design for the sashing.

Green and purple may be my favorite color combination. The green fabrics are a combination of stash and much hunted-for shades of the exact right green, which for me means true green leaning toward teal.

The back was pieced from fabric that's not my favorite, or that I have a whole lot of and bought just for backings.
|The back, featuring not-the-best green|
The binding used up most of the rest of my Fizz in the medium green hue - I'm sad to see it go, but I love the shade of it and thought it was worth it to use on the binding, since it is pretty visible.
This one will hang in the very bare bedroom.
