TUESDAY TEA TIME
I have not made any more tea and cup themed blocks, but I have looked around at some. My favorites for today:
Here is a real work of art by Kate Themel. Coffee Break 3 is deceptively simple.
Just a few cups stacked up on some saucers. But look at how she gives them that 3-D quality with shading through fabric choice and stitching placement.
Look at the dimension and movement.
I also found a more simplistic, playful design. This is Maartje Quilts in Amsterdam. She has a tutorial that includes what looks like paper-piecing and serendipitous slicing and stacking. CUTE!
However you spend your day, take time for a cup of tea and comfort.
Oops! Forgot to show you Temecula Circa 2016 BIRDS IN THE AIR yesterday.
Also, I am now 17% finished with Splendid Sampler. Here is Block # 17, Family Stars, designed by Kimberly Jolly of the Fat Quarter Quilt Shop. As far as 6" blocks of more than 50 separate pieces, this one was quite easy. NO RIPPING!!!
