Green Tea and Sweet Beans Blocks

Image may contain: indoor

Here are all my blocks for Green Tea and Sweet Beans! They're finally all done! You will see gaps between some of the blocks. I will be adding 1 inch checkerboard fillers to make all the blocks fit. I'm going to take out my design wall and make sure I like how all the blocks are placed. I like to live with the arrangement for a little while. It's surprising the little things you notice if you just give yourself the time.

I ran a few errands this morning. When I got home, I started these little pinwheels. They measure 4.5 inches square. I wasn't sure I could get all 9 blocks made today but I did! I did some chain piecing and that saved me a lot of time.

This is the fabric I bought for the border. It's a very pale pink with muted multicolored polka dots. I will have to applique a vine with flowers all the way around the quilt. What a great way to finish a quilt! Will take awhile but should frame the quilt so nicely!

My Slabs

I almost forgot to post the slab blocks I made for our block exchange.  This block is about 8 inches square. It was supposed to be most...
