    I need some ideas for a tea pot quilt

    Hi everyone! I have a friend who collects tea pots. I thought it would be a wonderful gift to make her a quilt with tea pots on it. Would anyone have any ideas or where I could find a pattern?

    Teapot quilts are so cute.....if you just google "teapot quilt patterns", you will see a bunch of options. Some pieced and some appliquéd....some embellished with embroidery. Endless options... Have fun and share when done!!!

    Years ago The Cloth Shop in Vancouver Canada had a wonderful teapot quilt they designed. Probably still available since it was one of their own. It was the best I have seen.

    Debby Kratovil is doing a Tea Party Block of the Month for 2018. Looks like a lot of fun, I plan to it, "plan" being the keyword!

    Not what you're asking for, but just another idea: I found some wonderful teapot-patterned fabric and made a tea cosy for my teapot-collecting friend.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Not sure if you want applique or pieced teapots but Kay Mackenzie has a pattern book called Teapots 2 to Applique. I love this pattern book. Here's a link to it on Amazon.

    I just typed in "Whimsical Tea Pot Quilt Patterns" into a Google Search and there are many. Take your pick!

    I made one for a friend several years ago. Found a fabric on line that had teapot blocks, about 8 inches square. Quilt turned out lovely.

    You could find a paper pieced pattern for a teapot and make blocks in many different fabrics . Then you could make the quilt whatever size you like.

    My cousin collects teapots, and two years ago for her birthday, I gave her a set of tea towels with teapots embroidered with appliqué on each one. I think I may have done a set of six, but there were more teapot designs in the set. May have been by Anita Goodesign but can't swear to it. Not at home so can't look.

    She also has a book one that is not in print anymore, but you may still be able to find it in a library or on Ebay. They are very cute, easy patterns that you can either quilt or applique.

    Another thought -- coloring pages. You can find different shapes of pots to use for applique by doing a search for tea pot coloring pages. Here are a few that turned up from my search:

    http://www.supercoloring.com/coloring-pages/teapot
    http://coloringtop.com/holidays-colo...coloring-pages
    and here is a pinterest link

    Found teapot in Easy Paper Piecing by Bonnie K. Browning, 2013, which says it is selected from AQS Paper Piecing Patterns, 1999.

    There is a lovely booklet on The Seasoned Homemaker site. Just happened to see it this morning and remembered you'd asked.
