WiP Wednesday

I've had Jen-Kingwell's 'Green Tea and Sweet Beans' pattern for some time now, but I'm not a big fan of applique so I haven't jumped in! Like many though, I have been following Lucy's progress over the year with her GT&SB quilt. Whenever I see a new post I think... enough sitting on the sidelines!

I decided this would be perfect for using fabric scrap pieces from many a past project so I dug out a selection of itty bitty prints from the scrap basket this week. And a couple of weeks ago I grabbed an online opportunity here @ westwood acres fabric and ordered their special starter pack, a little 'stash enhancement' to help kick this new project off. I also kinda like the idea of this quilt being jam packed with little bits of Liberty fabrics, and I've added them into the GT&SB basket too. So, I've had my fabrics all sorted for a while now, it was just a matter of when to actually start! 

This week, while recovering from a very nasty flu' bug, I finally began making these little blocks of 'pretty'. It's great having a slow project that I can come & go on as time permits and as the mood takes me. Loving the change of pace & scale.
