A few weeks ago Gemma at Pretty Bobbins asked for pattern testers for her new paper-pieced patterns. Rather foolishly I volunteered myself even though I was due to go on holiday in the next couple of days. Still, when Gemma sent me the pattern for her Very Triangle Teapot block I knew I wanted to have a go at it.
Needless to say it took me rather longer than I had wanted to complete the pattern, but it is now finished and ready for use.
As well as one layer of Insul-Brite wadding I also added a second layer of bamboo wadding so this teapot hot pad will protect my tabletop from the hottest teapot. The pattern was really straightforward to put together, although I did have some problems matching up the points on one row, but that was entirely self-inflicted :)
I thought I might have problems with quilting the pad through two layers of wadding, but it all went swimmingly. I quilted in the ditch around the teapot and then FMQ'ed swirls of steam for the background.
You can see the quilting better in this photo.
The teapot pattern is available as a free download at the Pretty Bobbins Craftsy pattern store.
Next up Kristy's Retro coffee pot pattern but before that I have some birds to sew for my day on the
I have a plan, I just need to get ahead and do it!
