Tea Party Blocks Being Pieced

 Here's a bunch of fabrics I picked out for piecing.  Usually I do that using an inspiration fabric which is the rose fabric I'm using as the center of each block.  I don't usually use all the fabrics I pick out but I like to have the options as I do piece and I try to have unity for the blocks. As I started I ended up leaving out the yellow fabric and a couple of fabrics that didn't feel right after all.  So far I've pieced 3 of 8!
I also finally got the Teapots 2 to Applique book and I have an idea to have a Teapot with a creamer and sugar in the center!  Then around the center will be teacups and tea things and goodies!!!  This is going to be so much fun!!!  Also I'm thinking of using my inspiration rose print fabric as the main body of the teapot, we will see how it goes!
 The piece of Dupioni silk fabric on the bottom of this block is really neat it's both green AND pink at the same time!!!  So sometimes you see more green other times you see more pink but usually you see green with a tinge of pink like this photo!

Hi, this is lovely and these are my favourite colours, I am piecing a crazy block together and it is in greens and pinks, my inspiration to start this form of patchwork came after viewing your blog and Kathy a shawkl it is so lovely. Where is the book for teapot applique from? I would love to purchase it.
