1. Make a 9-patch using 5" squares of fabric in any greens you can find (avoid Christmas fabrics). Add a border of cream (calico or tone on tone cream will be OK). Don't get hung up on the "green", anything that says green to you even if it has bits of other colours will work. Don't forget to use 1/4" seams everywhere.
- Small prints work better than large prints.
- Put colours and textures together than contrast with those around them.
- Cut accurately and try not to cut into the left over scraps.
- Keep all scraps.
