    Pot of Tea? UFO - Finish

    Hi Guys,

    Here are some pictures of my latest finish - the whole quilt and three of the panels. It was a Block of the Month called Sweet Tea, which of course I didn't make as they arrived... no I collected them, in a nice pile.... (never quilted much before) and eventually made all together!

    I started this quilt when I was very very very new to quilting and very inexperienced. I am still inexperienced, but since becoming a member here I have learned heaps, so I can now see the large amount of mistakes I made when creating this quilt top.

    Also, the company that put the BOM together sent some very poor fabrics... the green and white stripe seemed to have a bias in both directions.... stretchy and flimsy! So it was a real doosey!!!

    Anyway, it is pieced now.... just the quilting to do!

    Hugs and thanks for looking!

    I think you've done an excellant job. Quilting is not easy on good fabric. Bad fabric is worse. You did really good.

    I love it. But, I am a sucker for teapots and tea cups! You did an amazing job for a beginner.

    So cute, I love teapots and cups/saucers. You would never know you were a beginner by the looks of this top.

    I have the same set. I also have not touched mine and am delighted to see how it turned out. How pretty! Someday I will get the time to dive in on my sections.

    I really like it and have been considering doing a quilt with tea pots and cups for a sister in law; this really inspires me to get started. Thanks for sharing.
