This past week I finished my January instructions on my Garden Party Down Under BOM 2022 with The Quilt Show. Waiting for February to continue the journey. I paper pieces the dog ears and they fit on the center perfectly.This left me with nothing going on in the sewing room to work on, at least nothing I wanted to. So I spied a fun little idea on the internet and decided to give it a try in-between other projects.
I am using polka dot fabrics as much as possible in this. So have done a good deal of crawling through my fabric stash. Finding a good stack of charm blocks at the bottom of a drawer has proved valuable with this project. The piece on the bottom will actually end up being a tea pot. I have to get a good deal more stems into it before adding the spout and handle and fusing it down.
And this is the second borders. I am short of the 20 I need. I have exhausted my stash for prints, so looks like a shopping trip is in order. These are cut 6 by 9 inches. I am thinking about appliquéing scalloped pieces on top of them between them and the first border. Still not sure yet on that issue. I am winging this from a picture, so not sure where it is going until I get there.
