Green Tea and Sweet Beans
I had never heard of Jen Kingwell until I joined Instagram. Her quilts are amazing! I knew I had to make one at some point. It just so happened that I found one of her quilt patterns at my guild's quilt show. It's not a very new pattern. It was published in 2012. As you can see, the quilt is very busy.
Here's my version of the quilt so far!
The Orange Peel blocks are the first ones I made. I hand appliqued them but used the machine pieced them together.
I had made a total of 7 Orange Peel blocks. The middle block is called Baby Carriage. I appliqued the circles but machine pieced the rest.
This is Flower Garden. I've appliqued the stems already. The flowers will be next!
I'm using my fabric stash and my usual colors. I'd like to lighten up the palette. I want to be reminded of spring and summer. It's fun to find that small piece of fabric that you know will be perfect for that block. I'm having a fun time just taking my time and slowly piecing this together.
