Blue and White Teapots

Blue and White Elegant Teapot Table Toppers

This past weekend, if you looked around in my house, you would've almost certainly found me at my cutting table, ironing board or sewing machine.  I was hunkered in, determined to make 2 more table toppers, like the one I blogged about on Jan. 8. 
 (Some of you may have lost a bet if you'd have wagered on me that I was making more bird pincushions all weekend!  I did consider doing that, though!)

Elegant Teapot -paper pieced design by Kristy @ Quiet Play blog;   Fabric in Millhouse Inn by Moda. Posted on Jan. 8  blog
The two table toppers were commissioned by my friend, Samantha,  of At Home with Mrs. H.  Go on over to her blog and see what bags she has designed (they are beautiful! ) , and what she has been up to!    You can see the bags that I made using her patterns  at  Aug. 24   and   Dec. 9  in my posts.
 She asked for the colors of blue and white.

I had some blue fabrics  in my stash, that I thought she would like.  Timeless Treasures French Court.
After a  flurry of cutting ,sewing, seam ripping, and machine quilting ,  I came out of the marathon weekend with both teapot table toppers done!

Teapot One
The two toppers  only differed by  using different fabrics in the pinwheels ,in the corners.  
The toile , that is in the pinwheels on front, was used for the backing.

The back is the toile fabric
Well,   I am resting from making teapots for a little.   But it won't be long.    I have an order already for another.... for my daughter!  She said,  "  I'd like one of those, too!  I drink a lot of tea, Mom!"
I am getting myself a nice cup of holiday tea  and a quilt to  snuggle up in during this cold spell!  Stay warm!!

I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Oh these look great! Isn't it so nice when people request you make them something special!

  2. I love these blue and white tea-time toppers - they remind me of the chinese blue-and-white crockery. Very nice. Can't wait to see what colours you use for your daughter.

    1. My mother has her grandmother's Dresden Villeroy $ Bosch china , and that is why I got the fabric when I ran across it!

  3. I love the blue & white! So beautiful!! And a nice, warm cup of tea sounds perfect right now. :)

  4. These are beautiful. I love the blue and white.....have always loved blue and white dishes.

  5. Love the Blues! WHAT!? No Birds? where are those pin cushions?

    1. Don't worry.... they are around here somewhere... :)

  6. Love both of your teapot toppers! I am partial to blue and white china and toile too. Hmmm, better not let my DD see this.

  7. I love how the blue and white pieces are making a come back. I grew up with them. I don't know how I've missed this post?! Your table mats are gorgeous! That teapot design is perfect or working with an elegant fabric design.

  8. Your teapots are adorable! I think I need a something like that for my table too. Another project to add to my list!

  9. Very pretty. I love those paper-pieced tea pots! Thanks for linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday:)
