SATURDAY TEAPOT

Thank you Pink Penguin for sharing your lovely teapot tutorial. I just love this design and had so much fun this Saturday playing around with this pattern. Since I have done numerous 'wonky' style projects ( go here to see my teacup and here for my wonky houses) I free handed this without using the freezer paper portion of the tutorial. I also added a handle to mine. I sorta have an idea of how I will finish this out, but my thinking cap is still on. Isn't this teapot a real cutie!!!

That tea pot is gorgeous!!! beaufiful fabric choices. I'm thinking of a trivet to go under a real tea pot... wouldn't that be so cute?

I'm loving your tea pots. I joined a swaps a few months back making cups and mugs. I should really be getting started on these since they are due some time in the next couple months. Your tea pots are very inspiring and so pretty to look at.

Your teapot turned out great...I've been thinking about playing with the pattern myself!

Stephanie said...

CUTE!!! I just went and make extra copies today so I could play. Soon, hopefully. I especially love the polka dots. :o)

The Quilt Buddy said...

Really, really cute! The fabrics really make it "pop" out. I think that I will have to make one for my friend who loves to drink tea.

Have a good weekend!

Quilt Pixie said...

wonderful job! I love the cherry print -- just perfect for a kitchen teapot ;-0

Fran said...

Adorable...what's it going to be...a pot holder, a trivet or maybe the begining of a really cute wall hanging to hang over a display of your own china tea pots? Anyway you look at it it's a winner.

Too cute!! Love the cherry fabric.

Sharon said...

I love your teapot! And Yay! for you doing it free-hand! These are great fabrics - love the dots and the gingham. Very retro and kinda Mary Englebrite-ish too. This would be so cute as a tea cozy! And yeah, now you need cherry pie... ;)

Ginger Patches said...

OH. MY. GOSH. you just might have tempted my mojo back :) I love teapots but I'm not a huge fan of applique (doing it that is, I love looking at it) so a pieced teapot is just my speed!!! I'm heading over to Pink Penguin now!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Hey I made one too! I took some free license to mine as well. They are so fun.

jacquie said...
