If you've stopped  by the Flickr Group you'll see we've had some discussion on what counts as "Emerald." For our purposes, any green counts.

This Kona Farmer's Market Bundle has a great selection of greens (including Kona Emerald!). Not only is it a great stash builder, it's a great challenge starter!!

Hawthorne Threads is also putting together an Emerald bundle with a giveaway, so stay tuned for details about that AND our judges!!

  1. oh... these are making this even more enticing... thanks for organizing Ali!

  2. Could you please link to the original post with the instructions, as well as the Flickr group when you mention them in the post? It would make it much easier to find them for those of us who didn't save the info the first time we saw it. :-)

  3. Hi! When you say when we can use one (non-green) color and one neutral, does that mean just one fabric for each of those options or can we use variations of the same neutral, for instance?

  4. Also... Do the same color guidelines apply to the backing? Thank you!! Hope I can find time to do this ;)

  5. I'm so in!!! Our San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild is also doing an emerald challenge this summer.


Thanks for dropping by. Is something on your mind?
