Kay - Fifty Shades of Green (+1)

This topic left me stumped for a while, then a friend sent me a joke email about a man's idea of the meaning of  the book, "Fifty Shades of Grey".  It was a paint colour chart of fifty different greys!  So there was my inspiration.  My favourite colour is green so I wondered if I could find fifty different ones in my stash.  No problem!  The sad part is that there is at least another fifty and probably more, that I didn't use.  It was fun going through the green drawer and finding some old friends I hadn't seen for a long time as they had worked their way down to the bottom corners and meeting some new pieces that I didn't realise were there.  So this was an interesting exercise, one I should probably repeat with my other colour groups!

The quilt is "Fifty Shades of Green (+1) because the binding is also from the green drawer, making a total of 51 greens.
