I hadn't heard of until yesterday, when I searched for color ideas for my block of the 2013 Aurifil BOM 'Rock Around the Clock' designed by Jackie Kunkel.
Peridot is a gem-like olivine, which color is yellow, to yellow-green or olive-green, to brownish or sometimes lime-green to emeraldish hue. So I orienteered to the fabric box of green stars...
and I found these fabrics.
Of course I had to find out what kind of power stone qualities it has...
... peridot opens up new doors, removes the stress, fear and activates personal growth. It also releases old burdens and negative thought patterns.
Hmm... it sounds that I should have it in my pocket...
... but maybe I just admire it in my quilt ;o)
By the way Pat Sloan gives her own tutorial for 'Rock Around the Clock' block here. I cut and sewed the block like she did... but I noticed, that if you cut your HST squares at 4 1/4" x 4 1/4", you will have even more less to trim.
And BY the WAY
it was very relaxing to visit at Youtube and watch Bill Haley's song!
It's an eternity since the last time I heard that song.
See you soon!!!
