All the teacups are constructed. Pretty quick and easy. I have a little trouble with angle pieces when paper piecing but if I take my time I usually get it right. The teacups look so pretty and delicate, don’t they?An extra little bit of fabric on each side of the bottom of the cups makes them look a bit rounded which I think makes the difference between a boxy looking cup and a delicate one.
The center block is finished too. It’s a large piece of white fabric surrounded by a narrow strip of soft pink, then another strip of white. It’s perfect to show off some quilting - I need to choose just the right quilting motif. Any suggestions?
Next I get to play with the teacups, placing them around the center square until the most pleasing layout appears. A little more sewing and I should be sandwiching and quilting later this weekend.
UPDATE: This is the Tea-lightful pattern by Thistledown & Co. I’m working on it as we showcase Linda Zokan’s patterns for two weeks, along with giveaways and, in the second week, a discount on Thistledown patterns. Plus Linda is hosting a “Quilt-a-long with Linda” on her blog. Like us on Facebook and you’ll know right away when something new happens on the blog!
