Cup for Cathy

It was Cathy's birthday on the 21st, the big 50!  She really wants a 'cup' quilt and she asked her 'IG' friends if they would like to share a cuppa for her Birthday, but couldn't, you could send a virtual one by sending a 6.5" cup block.  So, us Tassie Blogger gals (that get together every few months or so) decided to have a little party while having one of our Cherry Shed stitching days and give her our blocks.  I used the basic pattern from the 'Spell it with Moda' block, but changed the size to fit inside the mug block.  I think from memory the letter C was about 3"!  Made in one of Cathy's favourite fabric ranges 'Rural Jardin' from French General.

I also made a foundation pieced tea pot to hang above our cup gifts.  It might even end up in the quilt... We will see!
I am really looking forward to seeing this special quilt come together as she has received some blocks from all over the world!
