Poisies and Teacups

Finished appliqueing the last of the setting triangles for the posey quilt. Here it is on my basement wall ready to be pressed and sewn together in rows. I will bind it in a multi-colored binding made from pieces of the fabrics used in the piece. I need to rearrange the blocks as I have too many similar ones together.
And here is my little teacup quilt all together and ready to be made into a quilt sandwich. As in the other little bluework quilts I made earlier, I will also sew a button in each of the little blocks around the cups. Next time I post these, they will be quilted and bound. These have both been fun to make. (Click to enlarge)

That's ALOT of applique Carol and I love your teacups. If I would learn to do applique on my machine instead of needleturn I might get alot more done. :o)

Those are some very lovely quilts! I really love the choices of fabrics in the first one too!

They are fun to behold, too. The posey quilt has such a feel of an old antique quilt, you captured that so well!
The RED one is perfect, too! I can't wait to share this post with my friend Beth- she loves teacups!

Your appliqued triangles look superb Carol....wow ...what a lot of work but worth it as they really do look fabulous. If it was me placing them I would put the one with the light yellowish leaves in the centre as that is a draw card for the eye....it draws you to that spot...so if it was in the centre then your gaze gets drawn to the centre and then it wanders around to the rest of the blocks. Sorry..just thinking out loud so to speak.
Your sewing is really magnificent :) Thanks for showing us. Hugs Vicki

Such a feast for the eyes Carol!!! The Poisies are excellent and how clever to use reproduction fabric. And, sweet teacups! I love anything tea related.

That posey quilt is something else! Wait, it's more than something else: it's FANTASTIC! I love it. It's antique-looking and colorful at the same time.

Love it! Such delightful colors...and the applique is just delightful! Will this finish out for a wall hanging...or a bed size? Can hardly wait for the next installment!
