Teapot Tuesday! and more stuff I'm working on

Santa block exchange blocks

Santa block exchange blocks
I love this little teapot.  The flowers are so cute.  I can't remember when I got this teapot.  I think I bought it for myself.




Last night I basted the Santa block exchange block so that I will be able to hand quilt them after Thanksgiving.  These were supposed to be put into the Santa block exchange quilt, but, I already have 16 blocks for that quilt that will finish at 20" square when I finish putting sides on them and making them 'wonky'.  These Santa blocks will be given as gifts for presents when they are quilted.  It's easier to baste them to one piece then quilt, since I don't like using hand frames.  I'd rather a standing frame.  I haven't used my Hinterberg frame since I purchased it a few years ago (I have several frames to use, lucky me).  This frame folds flat when not in use.  It doesn't take up much room at all.  It spins around, so that it will be easy to reach any part of the quilt top that I want, without me having to move.

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving Week!

  3. I love the teapot. I start almost every day with a pot of tea.

    I really miss hand quilting. Arthritis is a pain.
