just some filler...

Time for an update on my Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt! Here's the blocks laid out almost as they will be:

All hand sewn - hand piecing, English Paper Piecing and appliqué. There was one large block missing and the pinwheels and filler blocks still to make. I want to add some darker navy into those filler blocks but on the whole I'm really happy with it.

Good job I got that picture when I did because the wind nearly carried the lot away:

 I finished the final large block the other day, Square Daisy:

Now I have lots of little pieces to cut up and sew. I will probably hand quilt it too so it will be a while before I have a truly finished quilt! A labour of love and a fabulous skill builder.

  1. How lovely! I shall look forward to seeing your quilt top all completed and put together.

  2. I'm coming in from QuiltersBlogs and am going to send your post to my sewing group. This quilt is so sweet! So many interesting blocks, I know they will love to see it too. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

    1. Thank you LeeAnna! The pattern is by Jen Kingwell. I changed some of the appliqué blocks and created my own epp flowers :)

  3. Nearly there! Looking awesome.
