flowering


I finished my third and final appliqué block for my green tea and sweet beans quilt. 


The flowers were English Paper Pieced using Mini Hex Den papers and then hand appliquéd.


I didn't really like the appliqué flowers in the green tea and sweet beans pattern book so I decided to make my own and used three different epp shapes:


It is just over a year since I finished the first one and nearly as long since the second one! I knew it would be a long project!


I love seeing these blocks together and it's making me excited about the quilt as a whole! I'm really happy with the background fabrics too.


I still have a few more blocks to hand piece so it might take a little while longer before I get this one done :)

There are some great deals to be had on fabric this weekend...

  1. Just gorgeous! I am here from Crazy Mom Quilts and I am adding you to my feedly! This is a beautiful finish! I really need to sit down and try hand work again. I manage to mess it up every time and I have given up. However, I LOVE the way it looks! Enjoy your Valentine's weekend!

  2. The are great, I love the way you have used so many colours and designs together. I bought this pattern last year and really need to get started on it (especially as the pattern cost me a small fortune). x
