The requisite birthday cake. We like bakery cakes at my house. Not grocery store bakery cakes though. This one has a little to offer everyone's likes in the family. We celebrated Chelsey's birthday last Sunday.
She's not going to like this picture but oh well. I like her hair dark (natural) and long and today it is short and blonde (I think). She's headed to California for her birthday anyway, so she won't see this post until later. Happy Birthday Chelsey.
I thought I'd show the completed little apple teapot short and stout - all finished. This seemed to be the most popular teapot from those I showed last week. It turned out pretty cute. I like the little dot edge. I'm sneaking you a little peak at this cute vintagey paper doll fabric underneath. If anyone knows where I can get more of this I'd like to know.
Stephanie talked about us showing teapot love on our blogs while we are working on our swap gifts so I thought I'd show this quilt made years ago. It seems like at least 7 years? It shows my love of squares. I like to make pictures with shapes in my quilts. This is a fun one - totally scrappy but missing some contrast (again). I like to think I'm getting better at the contrast thing with the newer quilts I've made. But you can tell it is a teapot - can't you?
I don't have may blue quilts. Let alone blue and yellow. But it seemed to fit the subject. I think I got a little carried away with 4 borders though. My favorite border is the outside boarder with scallops. I need to make more curved edges like this on my projects I think.
I hope you have a happy SAFE day Chelsey - and weekend. Don't do anything I wouldn't do. Deal?
