This morning I had a moment of inspiration. My daughter's word of the year is Peace. She has made a few paper pieces using this word. I wanted to try and do the word in fabric. I managed to get the word PEACE done before I had to go to work. I couldn't wait to get home and see what would come next. As I looked at the word, I decided she needs some tea cups. When she was in college, she used to have tea parties and one of the things we like to do when se visits is make a pot of tea. So I made some more little teacups - these are about 2 3/4 inches. Then the idea of using the words in a cup came along and before you know it, I had this. It is about 11 1/2" right now. I am thinking just a small border and then it will be ready for quilting. I am looking forward to trying some free hand fans. I hope I can come up with a fun phrase for my own teacup quilt.
