Designed for clubEQ challenge, February, 2017: Use Pantone color of the year — Greenery (RGB 136,176,75). Learn to create a custom color in the project color palette.

As a souvenir from my trip to Sweden several years ago, I bought some yarn named “Linnea,” which I learned is a favorite Swedish wildflower. The colors of this quilt are the same as those spun into the yarn.

I love making “built-in borders,” with the piecing forming a chain when the blocks are set on-point. This concept came from my friend, Sally Schneider, a quilter and author.

The Prairie Points border was drawn as PatchDraw motif and set on Layer 2 around the edge of the quilt to create a virtual border.
