words and pictures - green tiles progress report

After lots of this ...


and lots of this ...


I've ended up with this ...


Whew! Actually since taking this photo I have added some white sashing as a border (to cover up the edges of my wonky squares), and am now working on a simple piecing for the back. 

I'm amazed by how quickly it all comes together once the sashing is added! Suddenly a pile of nine square blocks becomes a fairly recognisable quilt top! (If you need the back story behind the green tiles quilt it's here).

Check out the other green stuff over at Meet Me at Mikes ...

More about the adventures of the green tile quilt tomorrow! Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday :)

  2. Rita, coming from you - "the guru" - that is a MASSIVE compliment! Thank you a million times over! I think I managed to get some of that green polka dot fabric you had in your recent post for my binding today. It was very $$$ but hopefully will set it off nicely :)

  8. That is so lovely. I'm going to try it with a white square in the middle. I wonder if I can mix it up with the 70 blocks I've done for the quilt along. Then I could make one big enough for my bed!! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. LOVELY first quilt! Well done! I adore green and I love your fabric choices... I see a lot of Amy Butler in it... divine! And what a great story behind it! I, also, plan on using a bath for delivery if at all possible...once I'm pregnant, I suppose. I hear its the greatest thing since sliced bread! I do NOT want drugs!
