I liked working on this quilt. Mint is not my favorite shade of green, but it makes a nice backing for vivid violets, earthy greens and bolder Asian patterns. When this is done it's going to have a lot of visual pop. I'm also happy to have a chance to use up some scraps. After Christmas my scrap bags runneth over.
This section took about a week (I handsew veeeeerrry slowly these days) and since there are nineteen more plates to repatch it's going to take a couple of months to finish repairing this quilt. Still, it was the break I needed, and I'm quite pleased with how my color experiment turned out with this one.
