Stained Glass/Crazy Quilt Part 2

Details on how this block got started can be found on the first post Stained Glass/Crazy Quilt. Here is a photo from that post where I used the same color thread as the fabric.

Thank you to Susan from The Bored Zombie who suggested I try different colors.

Here are close-ups of each section.

Variegated green, I think this is my favorite one. I am not sure if it is the design, color or combination.

Variegated purples.

    Nice job, Jackie! I have a Practice Quilt from Harriet Hargrave’s store and we are supposed to quilt the designs over and over using a new thread color each time to see our progress. You give me something to strive for!
