Tea Time Quilt

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms out there!
Especially my Mom.
She taught me how to sew, crochet, embroider and cook ( as well as many other things) and those skills serve me everyday.
We are both collectors and one of her many collections is Tea Cups, hence this quilt.
This fabric came my way (possibly from my Mom) and I knew I needed to fussy cut those tea cups and that sweet tea pot and make something for my Mom.

 The black background sets off the color of the china so I added black sashing.
 The Heather Bailey floral print brings out the pink and mint tones and the periwinkle solid matches perfectly.
 All of the cups are pretty but my favorite is this one below.
 I dove into my box of iron-on transfers knowing I had one that referred to tea and I was right.
So an embroidered center block had to happen.
 The backing fabric is not a perfect color match but since it is on the back it still works I think.
I had to use it, I mean it has tea bag packets scattered all over!
This is the first quilt I have labeled, it feels good. I have to admit I really like this one.
Happy Mother's Day Mom this one is for you, I hope you love it.
I love you.
