Long story short......


Well here I go.....
some time ago (long time actually) I bought fabric and pattern for a beautiful quilt.....
I did make 3 of the appliqued blocks, other projects then took over so back in the cupboard it went.....
I then used the fabric for my 70th Birthday quilt..... so many lovely ladies made Teapot blocks for me, then I remembered the beautiful fabric I had in the cupboard earmarked for the other quilt.....
it was just perfect for the birthday quilt .....
so what to do with the 3 blocks.... back in the cupboard of course.....
I was given the beautiful doily bunting for Christmas from Sandi so in the sewing room it went but it just needed a couple of mini quilts to finish it all off.....
Light bulb moment.... the 3 blocks would be perfect .....
I was correct, I think they look fantastic....
I almost gave the 3 blocks to the local op shop, so glad I didn't ....
No waste.... all the fabric and blocks used so I'm very happy about that....

Phew.... that wasn't really a short story was it ?



First finish for the new year.....

Toodles....

Could have been a longer version! They look great up there.....a good use for them .....much better than hiding in a cupboard.

Great to see them out on the wall to be enjoyed... in the cupboard, they are no use at all!
