Tea or Coffee?


We had such heavy rains here that I had to stay at home for a few days.  I was happy to have this project to work on.  I'm having fun making not only mugs, but also I designed this teapot.  And I'm working on a cream and sugar and a coffee pot.  I followed Gwen Marston's suggestion in her book "Liberated Quiltmaking II" and made sketches of the different things I wanted to make.  And what a good idea that is.  I think I ought to try sketches before doing free-pieced letters.  Now these cups in the photo do not have borders on the tops and bottoms yet.  I only have a vague idea of how I'm going to arrange these odd sized blocks.

Sketching helps to bring things into focus, doesn't it?

NICE cups, saucers, and coffee pot! Your free pieced blocks have really come out looking great.

Looking good. I'm thinking of doing a cups and saucers quilt too.

thanks for stopping by. That book will generate a whole lot of bright, beautiful, fun quilts. I love your cups and saucers Roz. When you read that book don't you just itch to get going? It's so much fun to let go and not worry about the quilt police. Can't wait to see what's next.
