happy stitching progress


I finished my hexagon panel for the Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt, I decided to English Paper Piece this panel because I'm faster at it and it is easier to get all those neat points!


I love the totally random (yet lovingly chosen) mix of fabrics:


I also completed all the Orange Peel blocks:


I'm so happy I decided to mix the modern fabrics with the 30s repro ones, I really love how they play together!

  5. Love the hexagon panel! It is such a happy mix! You have some of that sweet 'cherry' print! Is that an Ayumi?

  6. You are making such great progress- one day I WILL start. Just signed up for 2 more appliqué QAL as I decided I needed to improve my technique. Your hexagons are really cute and accurate too. Love the Cherry one.

  12. Ohh! I'm making this quilt at the moment too but i love your fabric choices! I'm using Katy Jones new line mixed in with some cotton+steel etc. I need to get on with it, its kind of a darker wintery fabric selection and as soon as spring happens i'll be a WIP til the autumn again!
