A Bit Of Applique

I was recently asked to make a teapot block for a quilt that a friend is working on and of course I was happy to oblige!  I went in search of patterns online and found several paper pieced block patterns, but none in the required size which meant only one thing...I would have to resort to (gasp) applique!  I found Pat Sloan's Mad Hatter's Tea Party Blocks and fell in love with the whimsical (i.e. easy to stitch) design, but even those were too big, so I used those patterns as a guide to draw my own teapot pattern.  I'm quite pleased with how the block turned out (even if it is appliqued) and I think it will be a nice addition to my friend's quilt!

Susan it looks fabulous. Good on you for appliqueing (?) it. Looks like a lovely old english teapot with the beautiful delicate floral fabric too.
