CQJP 2013: Block 1

 Today I pieced together my 6 inch block for this month!  I am not sure I'll keep the same color theme each month, but I do know it will be "Tea".  LOL

I have an idea for turning each block into a page though!  I will turn each block into an applique using This Method I use for hearts, and then so the same to a square of fabric and then place them back to back sandwiching some bits of lace and such out the edges.
 I figured for this block I would do a Teapot so I cut out this pretty one from a teapot print.  It's all clipped and ready to applique down.  Next is simply to get that applique done!
The Teapot needed a Doily so I found a little one in my stash and cut it out in a crescent shape and sewed down the raw edge.  It will be nicely hidden behind the teapot applique.

I promise that piece of fabric in the lower left is not really how it looks in the's not purple at all but a hot pink and similar to the top piece.  And the top piece is a little more soft and matching with the other pinks too.  It's always annoying to me that it's so hard to capture accurate photos of the pieced fabrics, with all the differences in sheen, texture, and fabric types.  I just have to keep going anyway.  You'll just have to trust me that the colors do indeed go together well!  LOL  My worry is that red rose on the teapot...not sure how I'll deal with that, but I will think of something because I do NOT want to add red into the mix...

I have had a nice time looking at your blog, and now I see you are doing a tea themed quilt! That is fabulous! Wow!
I know what you mean about photographs and color. It can be really challenging to get accurate.
Good luck with the quilt.
