Finally handed over!

Today was the first Sunday Stitchers meet up for 2016! That means lots of chatting, laughing, stitching, Show and Tell of projects and of course, eating. 
We had our last get together in December, when we had celebrated one member's 70th birthday in style with a high tea at Parliament House...Helen, the guest of honour, is sitting in the middle.
Another thing we did for Helen's special birthday, was each of us made a quilt block with the theme of 'Teapots'. 
A few weeks ago, Helen laid out all the blocks she had received...
They are all so beautiful...mine isn't there.
But today, I finally handed my block over. It's very plain but as I said to Helen, the plain will balance the stunning ones!!! Lol

The design is from Urban Threads. The threads are Cottage Garden's 'heliotrope'.

Maria, all of the teapot blocks look fabulous together. Helene will treasure them all.
How lovely to get your Sunday Stitchers gatherings started for another year.

I wouldn't describe your teapot as "very plain". I think is is very charming, and will look right at home amongst all the others.

It was a great day Maria, thanks so much for the teapot block and it's not plain and looks great with the others.

I like your teapot - it's unique and personalized and has taken skill to embroider it ...
The teapot quilt was a lovely idea for Helen's b.d.
