Tea Kettle block for our Charity quilt

 

My Modern Quilters Guild is very open and flexible to the ideas of our members. When Joan suggested that we make a charity quilt we all said sure. We are not sure yet for whom or when, but we just like the concept. She also suggested the source for the blocks.

Farm Girl Vintage is the book we are using for our block ideas. I selected the Tea Kettle block for our charity quilttb-re-2 and I couldn’t love it more.

I received this book for Christmas at my request to make choosing and making a quilt block easier for me. Our blocks are not due until April but I choose this early in January.

Isn’t it so darling? Plus, I love tea and blue is my favorite color. Perfect.

I theoretically throw out the idea of using up my stash from time to time. But actually I am usually happy to have such a large collection of fabric available to me. I was able to find the fabrics I needed in what I already had.

I made a copy of it for myself so I could cross out the cutting directions for the 6.5″ block. I figured I would rather err on the side of caution and mark out that side. It worked well for me.tb-re-4

I am thrilled with the final block. I already brought it to Guild and gave it to Joan and brought some 1930’s type fabric to share. Now I want one for me.

Why? I really have no idea. I just love the block.

Or maybe I will sew another block. Since I own the book I can peruse it any time I want and find other cute blocks.

This fresh pears block just seems juicy and wonderful to me. Now I am wondering, do I want to make this block or eat a fresh pear?

The answer is BOTH! With some tea, of course!

Sew happy!
