I grew up in classic sagebrush country and this is the color I think of when I hear "sage green." It is almost gray, and definitely more toward the blue, than the yellow end of green. When I first saw Deborah's color samples I thought, "that doesn't look like sage to me, but..." Then I saw the photo of the herb, sage, that Brenda posted and the color was pretty close to Deborah's green.
I just did a Google image search on the words "sage green." and this is the top of the images shown.
Ha! It looks like quite a number of medium to light shades of green can be called sage. What do you think sage green is?

About Twelve by Twelve
We are twelve quilt artists who embarked on an art challenge together. We're from different places throughout the world and our artistic styles vary, but we share a love of art quilting and a desire to play, experiment, learn, and grow.
For four years (2007-2011), we each made a 12x12 inch quilted art piece on a designated theme or palette. See our Theme Series and our Colorplay series.
For the 2012 Series, we changed things a bit and made rectangular pieces, 20x12 inches with roughly 10 weeks between each challenge. As before, we had a designated theme for each challenge.
We shared our process, progress, and results on this blog. It remains a key record of our rich collaboration.
