I always thought going to the fair was such fun. I wanted to see the largest tomato, fanciful poultry, long-eared rabbits, gigantic pigs, quilts that took hours of planning and stitching, the best flower specimens, and table settings ready for the perfect tea party.
This year’s summer card design is a still life expressing my joy at the fair.
I have made a few quilts over the years and I thought I would share some. This Blue and White Tea quilt my sister and I made for a family member. This person likes tea, blue and white china and a splash of bright color here-and-there. At the fabric store we picked out all the blues that would go with a tea cup and pot fabric.
This quilt is constructed of squares and occasional four triangles making up a square. To give it a slightly formal touch we made the edging and binding out of a simple stripe.
