Green Tea and Sweet Beans Update


I've been working steadily on Jen Kingwell's Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt. It's such a great quilt to make. I feel it's a real skill builder. There are so many different techniques involved with all of the various quilt blocks. This is the Wedding Chain Block that measures 6 1/2" square.


I finished the Double Drunkards Path blocks. I made these blocks using a combination of machine as well as hand piecing. They certainly took me awhile! They measure 8 1/2" square.


These are the Lozenges blocks. I loved using all the different fabrics on these two. The more fabric, the better! (At least, for this quilt!) These blocks are 6 1/2" square. 

The next block looks difficult. I may have to figure out my own way of sewing it together. I'll post it eventually!!

  1. Designs by Jen Kingwell are real beauties but pretty complex, I love fabrics for this pattern. The Double Drunkards Path blocks are looking good!

    1. Thanks! I think I'm learning all sorts of techniques I never knew before. A bit nerve wracking, but fun!

  5. I love those double drunkard's path blocks. Too bad they were so complicated, can you imagine how cool a whole quilt made of those blocks would be?
