Oh happy day! teacup quilt update

Good news today, I've gotten the teacup quilt top assembled.  It's still awaiting measuring and a decision on the borders.  One thing you can notice from the photo, is that when I sewed the lettering I didn't pay attention to the warp and weft of the fabric, and the shades of blue are definitely different in the photo.  But in this style of quilt, I don't think it matters at all.  If I ever make anything really fussy (when would that be--when the cows come home) I'll have to keep the fact in mind.  It was great fun to get this quilt top together and I was glad to be using up fabric left over from the 20th Century (a little joke--ha ha.)  And I have some idea of what I want to make for Lazy Gal's Amish quilt challenge.  I've been trying not to peek at the Challenge blog until I have my Amishish quilt under way, because I don't want to be influenced by everyone else's ideas, or get discouraged when I see how great the creations are!
Personally, I'm nearly better from the sicknesses I had, and I have some plans to do some things with my family, so I might not post anything for a couple of days.

So glad you're feeling better!
Congrats on getting the teacup top together -- it's really cute! I think the different blues in the words make it more interesting.

Heh Roz, once the quilting is done, the letters will just blend. I love this quilt. It's very very original...I need coffee too!
Go outside, the weather is warming and you will get your Vitamin D to make you feel so much better.

I thought the different blues were deliberate - they look planned to me!
