While planning the quilts in my first post, I was totally shocked how long it took me to find seven shades of green that liked each other. I think I stressed over the choices for about two months before I had enough. I needed a pair of fresh eyes. A friend of mine, an artistic Montessori teacher, fixed it in about two minutes. She fiddled around with about ten fat quarters I had chosen and pulled out the most pleasing little palette, just like that. And dang, she nailed it.
