Time for Tea - Green Tea!

I've been busy sewing my H blocks together this week
and my only contribution to RSC 2015
is below

again not yet appliquéd just fused at the moment.

You may or may not notice that the size of this block is
a little smaller than the first three - blame Downton Abbey!!
I have all the five series on DVD and whilst my husband's away
on a three day painting session I decided to have a relaxing time watching
Downton once again.
I had been through series one and two (no housework done of course)
and was keen to begin No 3, decided to quickly do one green tea pot
before viewing any more, obviously wasn't concentrating
and so we have the top green spotted piece one inch shorter than
it should be! I'm tempted to just reduce the depth of the
bottom half slightly to keep the balance rather than make another block and I
could then reduce the proportions of the first three as well. Just one more episode and then
I'll decide!

My garden is well into Autumn with things looking
tattered and torn but I had a package delivered yesterday with KF collective fabric, and I 
love the three pansy pieces above.

Linking up with fellow "greenies" for RSC 2015
and I should have six green stars to post next week.

Sorry about the mishap with the teapot, but Downton is worth it. I can't wait for season six. That pansy fabric is terrific, so colorful. I have a couple of KF charm packs, saaving them for something special.

I love Downton Abbey! Well, I hadn't noticed the smaller block size,but on checking back, I do see what you mean! I rather like the different proportions of the dotty bits! Maybe as it's not actually appliqued down yet,you could gently peel it off,and re-stick it onto the correct size?

naughty Downtown Abbey! My weakness is Outlander.

Whatever the size, those teapots are so charming. And the lids are fussy cut perfection!

This month's teapot reminds me of majolica pottery - lovely! The KF pansies are making me want to order up some new KF for myself!

A downton marathon sounds like a lovely way to spend some time, I'm sure you will come up with a way to make the block work.

Love the teapot. I have a couple of DA DVD's, but need to get a couple more to fill in the series. So sad that the last season is coming up.

I've been enjoying DA DVDs lately too. Such a cute teapot even if it is slightly wrong sized. I've yet to even look at greens this month!!
