Green Onions

Green Onions

I had spring on my mind and a song in my head while working on this little quilt. Remember the cool instrumental number by Booker T and the M.G.'s? What a classic!

The blocks were quickly cut with Accuquilt 3 1/3” tumbler die, using colors of clear navy, spring green and crisp white prints. I randomly arranged them in rows, then framed with a subtle white and grey print. Single tumblers were appliqued onto the navy corners. I outline quilted each piece in white, using a straight stitch. Backing is a diagonal navy and green floral print.

Green Onions is 30” x 36” finished size. It reminds me of sunny spring Saturdays, cruising around with my mama in her '62 Pontiac Catalina, with the windows open and the radio cranked up. Gotta love those memories!


Music is the way
our memories
sing to us
across time.
