Yes....do you remember this?? I adore the large criss cross stitching!!! I was looking at it closely one day and I wondered if I might be able to do a pattern and maybe free piece the teapot...hhhmmmm...let's see if I can give it a go!!
So, I got out pencil and paper and drew out the design...using lines where I might cut and sew and drawing out shapes to sort of 'jury' what type of fabric to use where...with a little color too. The numbers you see there on the handle I put trying to help myself know what pieces to maybe sew first. The little round circles represent polka dots.....yes, I had someone in mind who LOVES polka dots!
After numerous rip outs and re-placements of the different fabrics I finally had the center to my mini quilt started. Now I just had to figure out what would come next!
