They’ll be Wonderful in Many Color Palettes!
Pretty patchwork pieces cut into shapes turn into a sweet teapot and matching teacup coasters. Choose fabric to match your decor (or tea set!) for lovely accent pieces to brighten your table.
This is an easy project to complete, and one you can finish quickly. The trivet and coasters are turned so there’s no binding to deal with.
The instructions, from ReFabulous, may need a bit of tweaking as the designer says:
“Let me state right here that I am NO quilter, of any kind, so please forgive my unmatched and imperfect seams. If you’re a quilter, I can only imagine the gorgeous pieced or quilted designs for the teapot and coasters you can come up with for this project!”
Regardless, she did a great job and we only noticed one spot where we might have changed the width of the seam allowance. She pressed her seams open which makes for a flatter trivet and coasters.
Also note that the pattern does not contain seam allowances. You’ll need to add them before you cut out the shapes.
Finished sizes are not provided but the pictures indicate that the trivet is just the right size for a teapot.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
