All the Kits are Gone but the Joy Lingers On|
I purchased 6 kits to share, made one and sold the rest.
Sorry, all of the kits have sold.

|Riley Blake's Teapots Quilt Kit (Lori Holt's
design) had an adorable Keepsake Box which I'm using for
Since I don't like to copy other people's
work used the instructions as a project guide rather that
a must. It's was lots of fun.
|It was a piece work project that I turned
into appliqué. I slightly changed the pots as well.
Using the measurements given I made a paper pattern first. Slight changes.

band and as a teeny tiny
edge turn accent to match the back. The quilt makes me smile.
Use the photos as a guide for you to create your own pleasing teapot quilt.
