Yellow Teapot, cup and set of dishes

A scrappy little teapot if ever there was one! That little chicken!     Cooking!    A baking hen!

It seemed to call for a set of dessert dishes as well.

What's a pot of tea without a few cookies or scones?


I especially like the fabrics on the dishes




two little teacups...


This is the hexie project from last week... finished!

I did an envelop turn then wondered how to quilt it.
I tried hand quilting but I hadn't taken all the seams from the crumb piecing into consideration. Hard to quilt through.

The stitching looked uneven and too large so I pulled it all out. So...

Went to the machine.

And sewing from the front with bright yellow isocord in the top and lime green in the bobbin, sewed in the ditch of all hexies.
 I tried sewing an accent along the outer edge and it looked Becky Home-Ecky. Pulled that out.


Then I added one more row of stitching inside each hex and it looks good from both sides
Kind of modern to my eyes. It's not overly quilted, as I didn't want that look nor to spend more time on this. I could change my mind...

  1. Hi LeeAnna,
    That table runner looks great! Is it all in place on the treadle?
    Lovely dishes! All set for a Spring tea! I'll bring the biscuits!
    Take care!

  3. Omg! That chicken is so dang cute! You get the best fabric. And your hexie runner came out great - just the right amount of quilting. Doesn't take away from the hexie work which you want to be the star - well done!
