Literally..I still have so many quilts tucked away and keeping them buried in plastic tubs in the garage makes me cringe..
So I’ve put my beautiful little Tea Cup Quilt on eBay to see if it can find a good home. Where it will be loved. Where it can be displayed. Where it won’t be stuck in a tub!
I made this quilt while I belonged to my Tea Buddies Flickr group. While I was a member, I met lots of ladies I still keep an eye on and a share a sweet word with every now and then.
I had a lot of fun in that group. I was a part of something where I created and my Buddies supported my efforts. I would strongly encourage anyone to get involved. Jump in and join a group. Join a block exchange. Join a swap. Make friends y’all…Yes, online friends!
I designed this quilt myself. I hand appliquéd the tea cups and hand embroidered the flowers. I can’t remember if I used the embroidery designs from a CrabApple Hill or Black Cat Creations pattern. I believe I adapted them a bit to fit in a tea cup.
I was inspired by my collection of tea cups I displayed on my kitchen hutch…flowers, cups and doilies.
Originally, my design was supposed to incorporate my moms crochet doilies but once I finished the quilt, it was a little too busy with the crochet. But no worries mom..I kept the doilies:)
So tell your all your tea buddies that there’s a special quilt top out there for sale!
All it needs is a quilter to finish it off, or instead, just add the backing and make it a table topper. It’s small enough to even use as a wall hanging or a throw.
Don’t let quilts live in plastic tubs! Adopt one today:)
