Juliann - completed top



There we go.

All sewn together - just need to find a free evening to get it basted and I cannot wait to begin quilting this one. I don't think I will do another border, just a black binding.

Thanks again for the nudge Tonya - this was really great fun! By the time I got to the words on the top border, I was really flying with my free piecing.

Hope everyone else can find the inspiration to continue their pieces. Enjoy.

It's fantastic! Your borders came out incredibly well. I love the saucer on the orange cup - very fun. Of course yesterday, after commenting that I was drinking a cup of tea and reading your post, and then over at Cher's commiserating on her computer problems, I tipped my tea all over the place. luckily just got the keyboard wet... hope it likes tea with milk - I'm waiting for it to dry out. luckily have a laptop in the meantime...

This looks great! It's well balanced and yet wonky and charming all at the same time :- ) You deserve a big pat on the back for this one!

This is so lovely! I like the way your letters are quite skinny. Mine usually end up a bit clonky. I would like to make a tea quilt for my daughter, as she loves the stuff!

Great quilt! I like the cups in the border enticing us to have a cuppa.
