I have a completion to show! Well, actually it is not complete, but I have made something from a set of 15 minute blocks and I am darned proud of actually having made something! Finally.
It is a series of Christmas presents I am doing, not for anyone in particular. But I begin with an object like a ceramic deviled egg tray from the 60's or in this case a tea pot from my collection.
I found a book at the library by Maaike Bakker called Cups and Saucers that held a veritable treasury of paperpieced cups, plates, teapots and coffee pots. I fell in love.
I copied a few treasures and set to work.
This is what I ended up with.
And the leftovers immediately get put into 15 minute blocks. And I see great potential for the back. So the back looks like this:
I really love it! And the lucky recipient will love it too I am sure. Now to sandwich and quilt it.
glen: maybe I will make one for me! I have several people clamoring for one, there may be fights around the Christmas tree this year!
Wonderful! A two-sided table runner!
Wonderful pieces and wonderful inspiration for your pieces.
Thanks, all. I found some leaf plates today at a 50% off sale and visions of leaves on table runners and placemats danced in my head!
What a great idea, using your 15 mins to make Christmas presents! Love the hen an chich - nearly as much fun as the swissy dog on your blog!
They're both adorable!
