Vintage Home BOM – Teapots

One of my goals for this year is to do some more complex piecing, including curves.  When I saw the beginning of Jo Avery’s gorgeous block of the month in Today’s Quilter, I decided I had to take part.

I’m planning to use my stash of Liberty prints, mixed with some solids, and with a background of Essex Linen in Slate.

The first two blocks are teapots, and I really love these designs.

I’ve had the zoo print for a while, and it looks so nice on this teapot.

I haven’t pieced curves before so I bought Toby Lischko’s Clever Curves course on Craftsy.  She uses just a few pins and shows how to manipulate the fabric to get a smooth curve.  It’s an excellent course and I recommend it if curves aren’t (yet) your thing!

Jo includes photos of vintage china in her articles, so I thought I would show you some of the pieces we have, as I make the blocks.

This is a tiny teapot from Porthmadog pottery in Wales – and that is all I can find out about it!  It’s too small to use really, but very pretty and I love the colours.
