I was a month behind in the blocks-of-the month because I was in New Zealand during the November meeting when the fabric kits were distributed, but I was able to get all 8 blocks sewn up prior to the meeting. I'm really loving how these turn out, and the amazing thing is that the blocks in each column are the same, but can look so different, depending on which fabrics I chose.
I'd kind of forgotten what the finished quilt looks like, so I did some searching online to find it again. You'll see that most of those online showing the pattern - called Green Piece - are made up in a different fabric line and feature loads of applique. I guarantee you mine will not have that amount of applique. I'm figuring I will make myself applique the center "medallion" section and call that good enough. Honestly, I think all that other applique is just a little over the top and a little too busy.
I'm making some good progress on Thistlepod. Hopefully I'll be able to share a photo and update tomorrow!
