90 degree March

edit to add: I forgot to mention that it would be fine if you added something from your stash if it went with the green/blue/gray thing. Also, my layout has 16 blocks, so I won't be sad if you make me two but it isn't expected. Thanks!

I wish that was the weather forecast! I couldn't pass up the pun for my quilt. I'm up for March and all my fabric is ready to head out.

I decided the easiest way to describe what I want is '90 degrees' - no triangles or curves please. My fabrics are all greens, blues, and gray. Some of the packets tend more toward green, others blue. I calculated (for my stash report you know!) that I cut more more than 9 yards of fabric once done, so everybody should have a good selection.

I like funky, modern stuff - so that's the general feel I'm going for. I'm going to sash all the blocks up to 17" square, probably with the Kona snow. So Please:

make a block 12.5" min to 15.5" max - but it doesn't have to be a square
make all your pieces right angles
use at least one of the colored solids
make a signature block in any style you choose
return large scraps - I'll piece my block from them and piece the back, too

Thank you so much! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
