IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREEN! I had never considered myself to be green challenged. At one time green was my favorite color. It kinda got pushed aside because of my love of RED. But I still like green. I have green all around me.
I even have a green bathroom.
I have green glass in the window sill and a green stash in the closet! I realize that it isn't a huge green stash, but keep in mind that my repros and Christmas greens aren't represented. I never thought I could relate to Kermit, but I kinda enjoyed his little song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpiIWMWWVco Why am I so challenged by green? It's all about the perfect pumpkin. I want Pumpkin #34 to be the perfect pumpkin. I know I worry too much!!! So what I really want to know is... at what point does blue turn green and green turn brown? The right is the first green I bought, is it too blue? the left is the second, too brown? I think the top one is just right, it was the third and you know that saying about the 3rd being the charm, it will make a charming pumpkin! I'm gonna use it and be done with it!!!

I can't wait to see your pumpkins...I think # 3 green is good...what does it look like with your orange...that's what will make the decision. Sometimes oranges make greens look different.

You are the LAST person that is challenged by green. I think #3 looks GREAT!! From the picture, I would use #2 (more brownish) for some of the stems. You want some greenish in those browns. Remember, I haven't seen the pattern either. :)
I can't wait to see your blocks.

Hugs,
Giz

I like #3 but on my computer it looks tan.

I agree with you on your color choice, since I studied that quilt hard thinking I was going to join that swap... I was trying to pick out which pumpkin I would ask for as mine to do... until reality hit and I knew I was probably about to bite off more than I could chew at this time... I would have been out searching for the "perfect" fabric too..anyway back to the green colors... I agree the green to the right is to blue, though the one to the left would have been a really good pumpkin, I think the one you decided on is closest to the color of your pumpkin, atleast on my computer ... so there is way more of my opinion than you really needed *VBG*

And they wonder how our stashes get so big!! The search for the perfect fabric! I love #3. Good choice!

Oh, and I see you in the mirror! Gosh, I miss you, sweet thing! xoxo

So many shades of one colour....which one to use? I'm sure you'll pick just the right one. Can't wait to see the pumpkins.

Are you making green pumpkins? 'Cause I read Anne Sutton's blog about making pumpkins whatever colors you want, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that you might make a green pumpkin! I agree, though, that if you're going for the traditional orange pumpkin, you should see how the orange looks with your greens. Then you should decide if your leaves are young and bright or whether it's harvest time and the leaves are dying off. Too much thought?! LOL!
