This is my teapot for today. I've had this teapot for many years. See, I've loved old sewing machines long before I started to collect them.
Isn't this cute! My friend, Mary gave this to me last week. She knows I love sewing machines, including toy sewing machines. This one even has a bobbin. Thanks Mary!
The top Santa block has buttons sewed on for eyes, buttons on Santa's coat and on the mistletoe. The bottom Santa block has 2 different Santa's for the center square. You can see the different centers on this post. The top block is fused applique. I've never done this before since it is so hard to hand quilt thru fused applique. It's fun to try something new. On the second block, I'd seen a pattern similar to this one in several places, but, none of them were the correct size, so, I drew it up to fit what I needed. Graph paper is great.

Sorry this post is so long. The Santa block exchange was last night at quilt guild. I'll post pictures of all of the blocks in another post.
