Appliqué block-QBSA

Hi friends,
today I'll show you the steps to my first appliqué creation. Later, when I get it, I'll make a PDF for you to download. The block is for my September swap partner Robyn. She asked for a block with a tea pot, cup and saucer o mugs. I decided for a tea pot and started looking around in blogland, when I realized that I have a very nice tea pot in my house. So I decided to try my own design.
My design

Original with my version

Fabric selection

Pieces cut out

Basting in place


The two together
I am satisfied with the result and the process was very fun. I hope Robyn likes it too.
Week-end almost finished. Tomorrow alarm clock at 06.30!!!! Valentino gets back to school and normal live is starting again...The good thing is that it is my birthday and we will go to Furnas to take a hot bath, have a nice lunch and spend a relaxing day. WOW!!

Step two: sewing little 2 1/2" center square
Step three: sewing lots of 1 1/2" HST...
Step four: composing the block
Step five: DONE!!

Have a nice week-end. Hugs. Pink

New blocks

Hi dear friends,
I have been silent but not inactive! I managed to catch up my blocks for the Australian block swap. Here is my block for the 12" group to Robyn. It is my first ever Grandmothers Fan and it was fun sewing it!!!
Next two blocks are for Sue, our lovely group coordinator, she was my August partner for the 6" group.
And the last block is the one I made for the group quilt we (Flickr group) are making for Barbara Brackman to thank her for the great work she is doing posting every week a Civil War block and its history. You can have a look at her blog here.
Tomorrow I'll take my way to the postoffice. Soon new pictures of the new house and more about new blocks.
Hugs. Pink
