The Finished Pine Cones

Here they are, back from their travels, edged in a rather daring shade of lime green.  The idea was to give a hint of the greenness that you see in young immature cones.  Also, I didn't want them to look too heavy, which wouldn't be in keeping with the rest of the quilt, where I have used lighter, fresher colours rather than the autumnal tints of this particular panel.


  1. I think the touch of lime green makes the pine cones pop. Lovely.

  2. Thank you Laura Jean. It was a question of using something from the limited stock of threads at home. I was determined not to go shopping for different colours - and I didn't have time before we went away. So lime green it was!
