Sweet Tea Quilt
Several weeks before Christmas, I picked up the new (February 2010) issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine solely because it included a pattern for a beautiful -- and beautifully named -- Sweet Tea Quilt. When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I happily sent him a link to this quilt kit at fatquartershop.com. Can you guess what my first needlework project of the new year is going to be?
I've never really desired a quilt kit before, preferring to choose my own fabrics or take a "scrap bag" approach to making blocks and motifs, but this one I loved. The pattern centers around blocks of individual teacups, and I think the pink fabrics they selected are just lovely!
The fabrics are by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Dry Goods and are part of the Teatime Floral Two collection. I plan to start this on New Year's Day, and you can bet I'll be posting about it along the way!
