More Mountains and catch up teapots ..

Last week was pretty quiet on the quilting side of things, a visit to the doctor
confirmed I had extremely high blood pressure, ? kidney involvement.
A visit to the laboratory for tests and a visit to the chemist
for a another treat to add to my medication regime!!
I have been able to catch up with yellow and pink teapots,
these two are joining the purple one to be machine appliqued.

My fingers and toes are crossed that I have enough variation in the spot fabric
to carry on through the next few months. I may have to force myself to
order more yardage in other colours - pity!!

Mountains in green this week and  an update from Angela that we should be aiming
for dark green so here goes

My H blocks for our grandson are up on the wall but I need another 14 so
that's a job for tomorrow. Both the H blocks and the Mountains are so quick
to cut and sew, really enjoying these.

We had an afternoon tea/family party today for the 2nd birthday of our
youngest grandson, a great time had by all especially when
the luscious chocolate birthday cake was placed on the table,
you should have seen the eyes of the two boys, they couldn't wait
to try some. Pity I didn't take a quick photo to post.

Linking up now with all the greenies at
superscrappy for RSC 2015

See you in the middle of the week, hope you have a good one.

I love those green scrappy mountains. It is hard to believe how easy that block is to make because it turns out so to appear so time consuming.

The tea pots are adorable.....and those mountains are beautiful! You have a wonderful variety of beautiful fabrics. I like how you are pairing them up. this is such a great block to make.

I love green so I am enjoying your dark green blocks. You have enough mix of colors in the prints to make the blocks really interesting.

I just poked through several of your posts and love your work. Your use of bold and bright fabrics is just wonderful. It has inspired me for the row quilt I am doing for RSC15. I am going to look for my most vibrant greens for this next row.
Love your mountains. Are you planning to do a quilt of all mountain blocks or are you mixing it up a bit?

Love your floral teapots. What a collection of green mountains you've managed to make already! I still have to sort my greens...!

Good luck with the health issues.

I love the teapot blocks. What fun to make them with floral fabrics, just like china! So cheerful!

Ann said...

So clever using a morning glory for the lid! And making the center double as the knob.
Best wishes to your youngest grandson.

Your teapots are adorable. Love, love Kaffe fabrics. The mountain blocks are so much fun to make and they make such a striking quilt.

Raewyn said...

Oh those teapots are still so cute! Looks like you found a good selection of dark greens for your mountains - that will be one majestic quilt! Best wishes for sorting out your health.

I am still loving those spots - such a shame you will have to order more!

Kate said...

Love your tea pots, the make very eye catching blocks. The Mountain blocks turned out nicely too. You got a lot done.

Oh yes, those spot backgrounds for the teapots are truly wonderful. Just hope I don't have to buy more as a result. But I am definitely sure that more would help reduce blood pressure. :)
