Sew Kitschy Coffee Pot - April BOM
This month I chose to alter the pattern for the Sew Kitschy Block of the Month led by Kristy at Quiet Play. Ever have the urge to change a pattern up for your own quilts? As I make this quilt I have in mind the property I visited in the summer's of my childhood; my Grandfather's cabin in Canada. I am going for a rustic and simple vibe. Enamel hot pots came to mind when I saw that this month's block is a tea pot. Putting my vision to paper was easy enough. Figuring out the reverse image and sections seemed a bit more complicated than I had thought, so I just dug in, starting with Kristy's pattern for the lid and knob. From there, I improv-pieced, just wingin' it!
Bet you didn't even notice the counter isn't level!!
hmm, maybe you did...
Here is how they are all coming together...
Yep, looking at it gives me Cabin Fever ;-)
Linking up today with Sew Kitschy April Blocks Party,
