Yikes, Those Stripes Table Runner and Tea Cozy

I was leafing through my old Quilt Magazines yesterday and came upon this article of mine from 2006: Yikes, Those Stripes Runner and Tea Cozy. The small runner is made with 3 blocks and measures 18" x 36". And the Tea Cozy is 9" x 9-1/2". I've made several of these cozies over the years.

Here's another Tea Cozy made with other fabrics and a single Yikes block.

This is a tea pot appliqué I've used many times over the years. Remember my 2018 Tea Party Block of the Month? I used all Kaffe Fassett fabrics. These were started 15 years ago when I was teaching a Kaffe Fassett Club in an Atlanta quilt shop.

Tea Pot from my 2018 Tea Party BOM
Yes, I put all my blocks into a quilt and quilted it. But, I lost 2 of those blocks in the process. I shared the story last year. Here is the final quilt. The blocks are no longer free, but you can find all of them in the 22 page pdf in my Etsy store.

And one more rendition of that Tea Pot block. I designed this for Windham Fabrics a few years ago.

I hope to share some more photos from the past. I published over 600 articles in Quilt Magazine over the years. I only have a few of the hundreds of magazines left, but it's fun to leaf through them to see what I had forgotten about!


  1. Hi Debby! I can't believe that your tea party was in 2018. I've been planning on making a similar quilt for a coworker and still haven't even begun. I'd better get on it - thanks for the reminder! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. The link at the start of the post doesn't work. Hmmm. Is it all sold out?
