I recently received an order for my book Teapots 2 to Appliqué from a quilter living in New Zealand. She told me she had see a quilt made from the designs in a show in Orewa.

I was intrigued!! I asked her for a little more information, and she sent me a photo of the gorgeous quilt. It’s made with all Liberty fabrics!!



The Hibiscus Coast Quilters of Whangaparaoa, New Zealand, put me in touch with the maker, Julie Davis. Julie shared the following about her project.

“I would be very happy for you to use my quilt on your blog. It is such a lovely pattern and I thoroughly enjoyed hand appliquéing the teapots. The Liberty fabrics I purchased from a Liberty club at my regular quilting shop. There were six different Liberty fabrics in a pack for six months. I couldn’t wait out the six months so I purchased them altogether. I am going to use this as a tablecloth when I have a High Tea for my quilting friends.”

Those are some lucky friends! Thank you Julie, for allowing me to share, and I’m so glad you had a good time with the designs. And thank you Tish for letting me know about the beautiful quilt. Will look forward to seeing your teapot creations as well!

    Oh my💜 so lovely. What FABULOUSNESS🌠
    I have admired your teapots and thought about them for a good long while. My beloved grandma, lived next door to me😇. We played cards, she taught me to cook, garden, as we lived rural and were each other’s only neighbors. Midway thru each day of every day we had ‘ Silver Tea’ oh such a delightful experience, she would let me go to her wedding cupboard and take out the PRECIOUS special China sugar bowl of Sugar CUBES!😉 They NEVER were used because they were too expensive so it was always our really Special TIME. When you brought out your Teapots…😢😇😁 it brought me SUCH joy and memories. I wish gran were here .. I know she is in Spirit. Thank you so MUCH for your FABULOUSNESS.💋🌼👏👏 I haven’t been able to get the book get as husband is fighting cancer and has surgeries soon. But it is in my thoughts and I am laying it out in my mind😉. Beautiful work by Julie in New Zealand👏💜 WOW blessings .
