It was GREEN!

Being a quilter means knowing different colors and shades, hues and intensity. Is it a chartreuse, a plum, or shamrock green? I think I know these things, and then something happens that rocks my color pallette.

Yesterday my cousin and I went to Chicago and it's the Saturday before St. Patty's Day, so they dye the Chicago River green! There was a boat with 3 guys sprinkling this rust colored powder into the river and it looked like highlighter yellow in the wake, but then it spread and turned the whole river green...

Happy early St. Patty's Day everyone! :) Enjoy the different shades of green!
