Green grass of home

Isn't there a song by that name? "Green Green Grass of Home"? Since I am declaring there IS such a song, here are photos of my two latest projects. Both are UFO's. One is the 'Green and Greener' quilt and one is hubby's musical quilt. Now does it make sense to you, why I chose a music title with a green theme?

Here is the green quilt, in the process of being quilted. I am about halfway done with it.
Here is a closeup. You can't really tell, but I am just doing a simple FMQ shamrock in each square.Last, but not least, the backing has been sewn together and ironed. It is there on the ironing board on the left. The quilt top is on the table next to it, on the right.

That's it for today! We're off to run errands now, but I hope to be back in time to quilt a little more on the green quilt this afternoon. Enjoy your weekend my friends!!!

You are so right - it is a song .....

The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
The old house is still standing tho' the paint is cracked and dry,
and there's that old oak tree I used to play on.
