While we’re showcasing Thistledown & Co, I’m sewing the Tea-Lightful pattern.

All the little teacups could have been made from scraps…. I have lots of those…. but I wasn’t in the mood to go digging and measuring.  So I purchased the fabric kit.  It has just the right size scraps of 1930′s fabrics for the teacups and saucers.

I gathered the pattern, the fabric kit, and a yard and a half of white on white.

I had fun playing around with the fabrics getting  just the right (for me!) combinations.

There are templates for cutting the pieces to use with the paper piecing patterns, so you don’t waste fabric.  I think I’m going to wing it.  Now to start sewing . . . . 



  • Can;t wait to see your finished tealightful! Have fun.

  • I am pretty new to quilting, is this a pattern a beginner could do?
    love it…so cute.
