Green Tea was supposed to be my first paper piecing pattern but it was stubborn and refused to go first ;) The block is inspired by a cast iron Japanese teapot my mother had when I was little. We never really used it but I loved to lift it up from the Aga and feel it's weight and nubby texture.
If you have made a few paper pieced blocks before you should have no real trouble with this block. There aren't many small pieces and the construction is pretty straightforward. Matching up those diagonals can be a little tricky, I find basting sections together with a larger stitch length really helps. It makes it so much easier to unpick a seam when pieces do not align properly. I have also added tick marks to help you with this step.
The Green Tea paper piecing pattern is available for purchase in my Etsy shop and on Craftsy.
