Purple pots and blue mountains

I needed something new to show for the last purple Saturday
and when I first saw the teapot pattern in
Kaffe Quilts in Morocco I knew that these were on my future agenda.
In a crazy moment two days ago I decided what a good idea it would be to
make rainbow teapots but they would be fused and machine appliqued. 


Here she is waiting to go under the machine and
you will see that there is no knob on the lid of this one, I just
had to fussy cut into Thousand Flowers instead, in fact I may use this idea
for all of the teapots!

My other project this week was to play catch-up with the
Mountain Majesties and 6 blue ones are done












to add to the purples.
The centre seams are not sewn as yet because no decision has been made on
the setting. Once again these are slightly darker than they actually are, sorry!

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend and I'm off now to see what
everyone else has made this week in purple over at

I'm loving watching your progress with the mountains.. they all look great! (I recognize the background fabric in the last pic..very pretty!) and it's a perky purple teapot indeed, love it!

I too love the teapot - and the way it sits on those polkadots. The blue mountains are very pretty - the colours seem so vibrant and strong.

Love the teapot! And am blown over by your choice of background. Will the whole quilt be dotty, or will it vary by block? Meanwhile...I just realized that your majestic mountains are really a mother cat with her kittens lines up behind her!

what a great use of pattern and balance of color. The fussy cut teapot is right up my alley you know!! The mountains are so dynamic... how will all the colors be set into a quilt I wonder! Whatever you do will be full of color I know. LeeAnna at not afraid of color
