March Tea Pot for the 2018 Tea Party BOM

I know you've waited anxiously for the Tea Pot in our Block of the Month. After all, you have tea cups but you can't drink any tea until you have something to brew it in, right?

Here is a digital picture of a floral tea pot I made last year. Very traditional looking. I created this pattern about 20 years ago and have used it a variety of times for magazine projects.

Here is one set I made using my tea pot pattern - an entire ensemble! Hot pads, trivets, a Lone Star mat with a 3-D flower and, of course, a Tea Cozy! Published in Quilt Magazine about 15 years ago.

And another set I created for Blank Fabrics: a tea cozy but no appliquéd tea pot. That's because the fabric has tea pots dancing all over it!


I made the Tea Pot appliqué in 2005 for the Kaffe Fassett Club that met at Intown Quilter's Shop in Atlanta. I love this Lille Collection of fabrics, don't you?

Tea Pot. Appliqué size: 6" x 9"
Because I didn't have a particular plan for my blocks, I didn't use uniform sizes of background fabrics. That will be an interesting challenge when I go to try to put them together!

Here is a picture of a tea cozy using that floral tea pot in the first picture:

Did you see the Tea Cup I made in February with one of my Laurel Wreath birds sitting atop? It's the Cedar Waxwing, one of five birds included in the pattern set of 25 wreath blocks. I thought he/she would look rather chirpy perched on the rim of the cut! (The Laurel Wreath pattern set is available at my Craftsy shop.)

Also, did you know I created a Facebook page for our 2018 Tea Party blocks? You can post the pictures of your blocks and get lots of warm welcomes from our members. Here's the link:

2018 Tea Party Facebook page. Make a request to join and I usually see it and approve before the end of the day (many times well before). We'd love to have you share your blocks with us!

Next month will be the Creamer and Sugar Bowl. You can see them here in my picture of scattered blocks that I've made so far.

Some of the Tea Party blocks I've made so far
If you missed the January Block, it's still available: The Cake Stand (and cake)
And the February Block is also available: The Tea Cup

Here is the link for the March Tea Pot. Remember, this pattern is FREE only for the month of March.

See you next month. And don't forget to consider joining the Facebook page for the Tea Party!
