Green Tea & Sweet Beans {week #2}

I feel like I've made some progress this week with a few more new blocks for my GT&SB quilt...

Garden Path 6" block

Having lots of fun mixing up my stash for this project,
little bits of modern, Liberty, vintage - love how they all play together!  

a cute bundle of  Liberty- lious 10" squares - I'll cut into them next time! 

1st applique flower block

I've got a 1/4 yd of this pretty 'Betsy' tana lawn Liberty 
so I'm planning on scattering bits of it throughout the quilt

Along with machine piecing, I'm doing needle turn applique 
- h-m-m-m- it's been a while since I had to do itty bitty leaves like these, 
guess I'll get better by the time I've  made the 20th one, yes?!?

Double Pinwheel 6" block

So not a fast finish by any means, but very enjoyable watching it slowly grow. 

What are you working on this week?
Linking up with 'oh scrap' here and WiP Wednesday over here 


  1. Oh, I like the appliqué block!

    1. Thanks Karyn! Those leaves were a bit tricky, it’s years since I did any appliqué! I notice though, on looking around, not everyone gets them perfect... just like nature! Linda

  2. That's some lovely blocks you have there, can't wait to see what these will become. Pretty colors too.

  3. Oh those blocks are so pretty--love your choices of prints--that green onthe stems is just perfect with the rest...hugs, Julierose

    1. Thank you Julie! Yes, it's a real scrappy adventure!
      I'm using lots of little bits of everything. Green is probably the one colour I don't have much of, I suspect I'll be repeating those particular ones! Linda

  4. I really like the fabrics you are throwing into this quilt. Jen's quilts are a bit like Kaffe's, the more variety and colour used, the better they look. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

    1. Thanks! Yes I agree, it’s a great pattern for variety, using up little bits of everything! I’m just conscious of keeping the backgrounds fairly light so the pretty blocks can stand out just a little. Linda

  5. This is going to be such a charming quilt. I think you have made great progress. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  6. I love your flower blocks, Linda. You do make the best flowers -- of all varieties!
