Just a cuppa

A few months back, Dave put up a shelf for my dolls above the couch. It necessitated moving the large framed poster I had hanging there, but the the shelf had to be high enough to keep nosy kitties from climbing on it. That meant there was a large blank space between the top of the couch and the bottom of shelf.

It was just calling out for a wall hanging. I spent many hours playing around on Pinterest before I came across In from the Cold.
I could just picture it with only three cups, and in non-Christmassy fabrics!

Mom bought me this lovely fat quarter pack
 Which was a perfect match for my other living room decor. (and had a lovely tea-theme!)

Since I still had one WIP box empty, it seemed like the perfect time to start. It was quite different from anything else I've done. Most of the quilts I've done have been sewn from pre-cuts, or had only one or two shapes, and not a lot of cutting.

This, obviously, required cutting quite a few different pieces. And a lot of them were small. (I'm doing a smaller version of the cup blocks)

And sewing those small pieces was a little fiddly. There were a few false starts... but I eventually got the hang of it.
And managed one cup! And one was enough for that day. The other two will be tackled when I'm feeling a little more ambitious.

Cute pattern. I love the background fabric you used - it looks like steam.
