Green Monochromatic - Finished!

Not only is the Green Monochromatic Challenge Quilt Finished, it has been presented to a very special young lady under treatment for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
The back of the quilt was made with signature blocks of all her co-workers, who continue to admire her bravery during the last few months of treatment. Enough blocks were left for her family and those close at M.D. Anderson's Hospital in Houston.

Each block measures just 4 1/2" -- using 2" strips and 5" squares in between the 9-patches. A smaller quilt of 65 x 73, it is just right to travel and snuggle on the sofa.

Although I did not finish the quilt in time to link up at Patchwork Times for the Green Monochromatic Challenge, I will party with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
