|Green Tea & Sweet Beans quilt by Jen Kingwell|
Cecilia has been busy working on our next block of the month, which is a needle-turn applique quilt. This quilt comes from the book GREEN TEA AND SWEET BEANS by the extremely talented Jen Kingwell from Australia. Sandy and I saw the quilt in Jen Kingwell's booth last year at Fall Quilt Market in Houston. It was love at first sight! We took lots of photos and purchased multiple copies of the book, as well as her other designs, to bring home with us. The ladies at Pine Needles fell in love with this fabulous new designer too! Green Tea and Sweet Beans is a GORGEOUS quilt with an eclectic flair due to the variety of fabrics. Our fabrics have been hand selected by Cecilia and are DELIGHTFUL!!!!! You must sign up to guarantee there will be a kit for you. WE ARE TAKING SIGN UPS NOW. The first kit will be ready for pick up on Saturday, May 18th. Then each of the subsequent blocks will be ready to pick up the 3rd Saturday of each month. Here is a look at the first two blocks...
