    My daughter collects tea cups - and needed a wall hanging to cover an unsightly AC unit. I took pictures of some of her tea cups, and then duplicated them as well as I could in fabric. Some had fussy-cuts, a couple had machine embroidery and some used border prints. Hope you enjoy.

    Your quilt is beautiful. You have given me an idea I have a sister who loves tea cups so think when my broken right arm is working again I shall start one. Thanks for sharing
