TeaTime Trivets


These TeaTime Trivets were so much fun to make! I guess it's one of those inspired projects that magically comes together in no time at all. I think little elves were helping me!

If they hadn't been made for my dearest friends who I have over for tea every monday night, I probably would have kept them both! It took me an afternoon to make each one and I was in such a rush to finish the first that I forgot to erase my chalk lines!



I made them both 9 x 9 inches using the same background fabrics, one teapot and one teacup & free-motion steam. However I changed the placement and shapes of the teapots & teacups to make them more interesting and original. The only problem is that I can't decide which I like better! This red one went to the same friend who received this teapot cozy.



Linen, tea & pretty prints... what could be better? I will definitely have to make one for myself maybe in robin's egg blue... I wonder if I have enough of that pretty Strawberry fabric left!

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)
