Ready to Join together

There are twelve teabag blocks alternating between flora and fauna of NZ with the silversashings in between. I hadn't really thought of it till now but the silver fern is a national symbol worn by many sports teams so perhaps this makes the silver sashings even more iconic. Each of the blocks will now be quilted and I am thinking of using a traditional binding on this quilt. The stencils will be quilted around with probably a few embellishments to delineate things better like the edges of bird wings or floral variations.
