I do love a beautiful Teapot !!!!!!!


I really do love this beautiful teapot........ but why am I telling you ?


Well I have 3 wonderful.... lovely.....and very naughty friends.


They have decided that as I'm having a big "0" birthday December this year it would be nice to do something special.....a birthday quilt......this idea was inspired by Cathy and Jeanette who also had big "0" birthdays this year.
If anyone would like to contribute a block for this then please feel free to do so.....

I have chosen a "Teapot" theme ....
each block is to be 6 1/2 inches square with a cream background. The teapots can be done using any method ....appliqued/ pieced/stitched etc ...... and can be in any colour you choose and signed on the front of the block...... like a signature really.

Sandi keeps asking me "have you put a post up yet" so I can now tell her "yes I have"
It really is a lovely idea that they want to organise this for me.....

But I really don't want this birthday this year.....lol.....
Ok ... I'll tell you ......70.....years young of course...... OMG it can't be.
