Tea-Lightful

This is a paper piecing pattern by Thistledown & Co.  It can be made with scraps but the fabric kit had such pretty fabrics that I purchased that too.


I quilted what I thought looked like steam rising in the center area.  The second border is quilted with two lines that intersect at the corners.


The binding (first time I ever did a binding in white) is machine stitched with a wavy line in pink thread.
I love this one... so pretty and delicate looking.

Love the dainty tea cups.
I think that your finishing touches were wonderful. It matches your dishes too.

Kathleen, I love your finished piece. I am so glad you enjoyed making this pattern. It's always been a favorite of mine and you really did it justice. I like what you did with the binding and the quilting is great. Wish I could stop by for a spot of tea with you.
