Tea & Quilts - Part 2
Unlike the projects yesterday, these quilts aren't on the cover of their respective publications, but I hope these "inside photos" will at least give you an idea of what the piece looks like. This "Dancin' Teapots" quilt was featured in the Jan/Feb 2006 issue of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. I recently read that this pattern has been published in a book along with several variations of the pattern.
"Tea With Lemon" was featured in "Quilting for Everyday Celebrations!" 2005, a special issue from Quiltmaker's magazine.
"Tea Time" is the name of this needleturn applique quilt pattern featured in Quick Quilts #5, a 2008 magazine.
"Tea Time" is also the name of this pretty applique quilt, featured in the May/June 2006 issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine.
This "Coffee Klatch" wall hanging appeared in Patchwork Quilting magazine #29 from 2006. The block is actually called "Coffee Cups" and first appeared in the Kansas City Star newspaper in 1935.
And coffee also gets the credit in this wallhanging of a stack of cups and saucers, from the Spring 2006 issue of Quilts and More magazine. The piece is titled "Sidewalk Cafe," but I think it would be quite simple to applique the word "Tea" instead of "Cafe."
Kaffe Fassett's "Quilt Road" includes this gorgeous, brightly-colored "En Kopp Te Til Kaffe Quilt." I have no idea what that means. Coffee with Kaffe, maybe? Anyone?
A tea-themed quilt is also in the book "Tea Party Time" by Nancy Martin, and I wrote about it here.
If you love Old Country Roses, go to FourTwinSisters.com for a free, downloadable pattern to applique a teapot that looks very much like the OCR teapot. (Click on free quilt patterns, then look for the "Household" category on the bottom left of the screen, and you'll see the pattern for China Teapot.)
There is also a great link here for more free patterns. And as someone has already thoughtfully done with yesterday's post, please feel free to list any other tea-themed quilt patterns you know about!
