Tea and Sympathy (and Cake!) Quilt
Over the years I accumulated a large stash of fabric with cake, dessert, pastry, teapot, teacup and coffee pot motifs. Material so lovely that I didn’t want to use it and I just occasionally got out to look at. However last year I thought to myself I must actually use that fabric, it needs to go in to a quilt! I used the jewel box pattern by Brioni Greenberg from issue 1 of the Fat Quarterly ezine.
There is a very sweet little robin that lives in the tea garden, he came over for some crumbs and unfortunately I’d downed that apple, rhubarb and ginger cake in one and only managed to scrape together a couple of minuscule fragments of sponge to offer him!
