Jan and Robyn, February Partners ...........

Robyn sent me this lovely pinwheel block, vibrant purple and two soft, gentle colours - they go together beautifully. Also a beaded, mini pincushion 'thingy' (Robyn's word) - very pretty as a keyring or purse decoration.


Robyn asked for a block with the theme of teapots or teacups in any style or method. I pieced a teapot in a collection of Asian style fabrics I bought recently, and made a tea cup Mug Mat as an extra.



Once I started exploring pieced patterns I found some for Angry Birds - this will be a purse for a grand daughter next month - and a quilt with the theme of The Hobbit. A grandson loves the Hobbit and Lord of The Ring so I will have time to complete the quilt for his birthday later in the year.

Thank you so much for my beautiful parcel,
I hope this block goes well with your others Robyn.
Happy stitching, Jan
