avocado...



This is another one of those colors that looks mucky but sets off others beautifully. There are lots of great color combinations with avocado but this block is inspired by all the wonderful things growing in the garden in the spring. Greens are one of the few colors where warm and cool members of the family look good together. I added lots of different ones and some pops of flowery brights.

Here is the starter fabric on the lower left and the added fabrics...
