Green Tea and Sweet Beans - Section 4
I finished Section 4 of Jen Kingwell's Green Tea and Sweet Beans. I love that this quilt consists of applique as well as piecing. I'm having fun using my scraps but I'm also buying some background fabrics that I've never been interested in before this project. I love the multicolored polka dot background used in Day Lily. I never even noticed this fabric before. It's so fun!
This is the block made of the propellar blocks. It measures 13 1/2" square. It was a little challenging to meet all those little propellars! Glad it's done!
I attached the Propellar Block to the Day Lily block. I had to sew a row of 1 1/2 inch blocks to the top of this piece so it would be the correct height.
I sewed my two sets of blocks together and Section 4 was done! It measures about 26" X 30".
Time to start the next section. I think I'll be hand piecing Double Drunkard Path blocks. Time to get out the freezer paper!!
