Teapots and a finish

At last I'm back into posting and have a finish with my H for Heywood quilt for
my grandson and a teapot for RSC 2015.
The colour was indigo but I have a shortage of this colour
and we were told we could go neutral or orange, I went with orange - sort of!

I used "Dream" fabric once again, beautiful pattern.

Yes, my grandson now has his new quilt on his bed and DH and I
went along to their place this morning to take a photo.
Our son and my DH were holding the quilt up but trying to dodge the rain
meant they didn't have time to position the quilt as I would have liked!!

Although I was having a break and a general "rest" I was still busy sewing
the blocks for High Flyer for the younger of our two granddaughters
so this was ideal for working on my Tumbler Leader and Enders

a few of my old Hoffman fabrics, hunting through my scraps for these reminded
me how much I loved and still love these fabrics.

The blocks below for High Flyer are coming along, at a count up yesterday
I realised I had cut around quite a number of extra squares,  this came
about because of my miscalculation with the small triangles initially but all remedied now.

After missing last week I'm linking up to
Rainbow Scrap Challenge
but before I go I'd just like to thank everyone
who sent their good wishes, thanks so much!

It is always fun to see photos of quilts outside in natural environments. Mother "h" quilt turned out beautifully.

What a wonderful teapot handle...don't think I didn't notice...And the H quilt is wonderful. The mixture of positive/negative H's worked out so well.

Angie said...

So many wonderful fabrics to drool over! The "H" quilt is adorable and High Flyer looks like it will be amazing. Thanks for all the eye candy!

You have been very busy and so much wonderful color. I love it that you are using the center from Midnight over the Oasis pattern that we both worked on for your ID photo for your blog.
I love that teapot, is it your own pattern?

Oh, how lovely the H quilt turned out. Isn't it great to have a pair of quilt holders to hand! I'm glad you're back from medical appointments and hope all went well. I was out of pocket, too, visiting family.

Heywood's quilt turned out great. He is a very lucky guy. How did you make the teapot handle? It looks like raffia held on with black cording. A cute little pattern. Good going!

Ah, I want to see more of High Flyer now... love your fabrics choices!
Your grandson's quilt looks amazing, graphically bold & bright! Lovely to finally meet you on Saturday at the Ak Guild meeting!

That H quilt is amazing, the colours are exciting and the quilt has a fantastic rhythm! Your teapot blocks are all so lovely! I like how you fussy cut the lid on the orange one.

Emma said...

Wonderful guilt, what a lucky thing!

So much great stuff! I love your colours every time - this time the High Flyer blocks especially caught my eye: so hydrangea-y (sorry, know that's not a word!) And I love your dotty teapots every time.
