For the past few days I’ve been working on my tea leaves quilt.  I had to put it away for a while as I got tired of making these leaves.    However, the Happy Scrappers Bee meets this Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and I thought I’d better be able to have something to show.
 These are my blocks so far.  I have a lot more blocks and leaves ready to be appliquéd when I attend Bee on Saturday.  That is such a wonderful Bee as everyone is so willing to share and trade fabrics.  I would be lost without them as I wanted to achieve a “cottage” look on my quilt but had very few flowery fabrics in my stash and others were eager to donate.  Thank you everyone!  And just a reminder:  an e-mail went out from Buffie telling us that one of our members is new to quilting and has not built up a stash and would appreciate donations.  So gather up those extras now so they’ll be handy to pick up on your way to Bee on Saturday.
This is a picture of Buffie’s quilt, which is what prompted me to start my quilt.  You can read more about it here

On Another Note: Sew Happy.Me has a tutorial for a cute Dear Santa Wallhanging. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I love your quilt so far, Caroll! I do not have anything to show for myself. I don't even know if I have the energy to cull together my stuff to bring up tomorrow. I am not sure what to bring to work on.... Can't wait to see you!

are you appliqueing the leaves diagonally on the little squares? It's very pretty!
