I have been wanting to make a quilt with teapots for a long time, and finally got around to making it. Although smaller than the one on the pattern (which I cannot mention because it is PACKED for the move! Dang it!!! I promise to update this post as soon as we settle in), I think it turned out nice.
This quilt reminds me of my grandmother, and I will call it "Grandma's Cupboard".
I raided my stash of blue fabrics, choosing fabrics with small prints to emphasize the shape of each tea pot (except for the butterfly fabric, which I purposedly used on a large tea pot). The tea pots were fused with Heat'nBond Lite and were machine appliqued with blanket stitch and matching threads. I love machine applique...
Wall hangings are really all I have had time for lately. While I am traveling I will post more book reviews, which I hope will help you as you decide which ones to acquire for your quilting library this Summer.
Have a fun week!
