    Where did you find the pattern for the teapot ?My daughter collects teapots as well as quilts.
    I would love to make this for her. It's adorable !

    I love the pincushion!!!!!!!!!! Is it a commercial pattern, or did you design it?

    The pin cushion is adorable and I can see why it might have been really hard to assemble. A friend gave me a thread catcher like yours. (I think they need to be larger though).

    Really cute pincushion! I have the pattern for the thread catcher and made them for some of the ladies in my stitchers group! They loved them. Just right for hand sewing and putting all those little snips of thread while you are talking and sewing in a group. Not sure I would attempt the pincushion though!!!

    Your little teapot may have tortured you, but the pain will fade with time and you can keep on smiling every time you see it! I have that pattern too and have been putting off trying it. Kudos to you Mary!

    Where did you get the pattern for the thread catcher and how can I get it. Great gift for the friends in 2 of my small quilt groups.

    I think they're both as cute as can be. I collect teapots and would love that pattern.

    Darling little teapot. Thanks QuiltingNan for the link to the free pattern. Just might have to give it a try.

    I have a Mary Engelbreit teapot pin cushion. So glad, because it really looks like a lot of work! Yours are great!

    Those are sooooo cute. But, I see where the teapot would be heck to make. You are one brave person!

    I did the same pattern for our quilt guild exchange (which is this evening) and I agree it was not the easiest pattern. She doesn't tell you at the beginning that she hand stitched all of it.
