    So...my hubby's Nana is 84 years old, originally British but lived in Alabama for 60 plus years. She has the cutest Southern drawl with a hint of British accent..she of course loves tea (well a particular brand of tea, LOL), so since I can quilt now, I thought I'd make her a tea cozy for Christmas this year.

    What I came up with is a tea cozy with one side showing the London Roads block, the other showing the Alabama block (of course I will explain this to her, she is not a quilter). I wanted to play with prairie points and thought they may look cute here.

    I know she likes pinks and blues, and her house is decorated with these colors throughout. So what do you think? Is it a good enough gift or should I change something? If you were Nana, do you think you'll like that?

    Thanks all for any input, this is officially my first quilted gift to anyone outside the board swaps. Well, or my husband, but he loves everything I make, so he doesn't count :mrgreen: And it stays here:)

    What a thoughtful gift, and beautiful, too, as well as useful. Perfect! She should love it.

    IF I were Nana I would be so impressed that you thought about my history when you made it! Love it.

    It is a cover for a tea pot (the china kind) and is placed over the pot to keep the tea warm while it brews.

    That is a wonderful gift. I am using this idea for my daughter in a quilt already. She was born and raised in TN and is married and living in KY.
