Teapot Tuesday 84

Oh, we've got a bunch of stuff going on this week.  And not only that, but the teapot is, well it isn't an actual teapot.  It's a lovely quilted teapot.  See what I mean.............

I think it's adorable.  You have to check out Cindy's glob for the challenge story and her work of "heart".  I say work of "heart" because this week our cards are actually going to a good cause.  That is not to say that those that I actually do send don't already go to good causes, but this is a special situation and it might become a monthly part of the challenge.  I think that's such a great idea!!!!

The other stuff is that it happens to be part of the weekly color challenge also.  We were to use Bashful Celery Melons (Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo), and neutrals of our choice. 

While I was working on my daffodil card the other day, the lattice that I used reminded me of a quilt which is why I chose to make it part of my card this week.  There's very little stamping on this and a lot of paper piecing.  I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen to give it some quiltability.

I did use Fresh Fillers in Bashful Blue on the white piece and the tiny flower from Simply Said was used for the flower on the pot. 

Say, I was debating whether to add some Polka Dot Melon Mambo ribbon under the Melon Mambo panel - what do you think?  Yes, with a bow on the side, or no - leave it like it is?  Inquiring minds want to know!!!

Anyhoo, I think this came out pretty cheery.  I hope the young lady it's going to will get a smile from it.  Now, go and check out the gallery for this week.


  1. What a fabulous quilt block.

  2. No ribbon, for me.
    I love that bright candy pink lattice - wouldn't a quilt like that be so cheerful through a dark winter.

  3. Love the card the way it is. Ribbon would distract from the teapot.

  4. This is so bright and cheerful! Lovely job paper piecing...that can sometimes be much more tedious than stamping. So worth your result! Lindsay will love it for sure. :-)


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
