Show and tell

Here's a little show and tell for a Monday morning. This is my teacup block swap quilt. Because the 3 blocks I received were so different in fabric and execution than mine, I decided to use the nine of mine that I got back on the front and inset two of the three others on the back (one went to a bloggy friend). I found the Moda "Bistro" line fabric and it was just what I needed. Now, it's a coffee cup quilt for my husband, the coffee drinker.

Here's a detail of the border. Love the design.

And a picture of the back, showing the two swap blocks.

Here's the Thimbleberries Club 2002 spring wall quilt, finally appliqued. I will be sending all four of the Thimbleberries designs to be quilted this week. I think I will have a special quilting job on the coffee cup quilt since it's applique.

I just love your coffee cup quilt. The border fabric looks great and really sets the cups off nicely. It turned out really good. Your cups are so cute. Hugs, Linda

What a lovely block. I don't think I've ever seen coffee/tea cups with the saucer behind it like this. It really is a beautiful quilt.
