Blocks Pieced for Tea Time Round Robin

I have been packing and preparing to leave on vacation for a week - to Arizona for Thanksgiving with DH’s family.  We love going down there - and usually do every winter - but this year we missed our annual visit because of Bruce’s back surgery in February.

I’m taking the Tea Time wall hanging along to work on (and finish up!), as well as a block for the Autumn Round Robin I’m in.  And in January I have a couple other round robins starting.  One is a Tea Time DYB (where every participant pieces six 6” blocks, and every person stitches one complete block when it comes their turn).  Anyway, here are my six naked Tea Time blocks.


I found the batik cotton while rummaging through my stash.  It became my inspiration piece and stepping stone for the color scheme.  Of course, a lot of the block is covered as it is stitched, but I think it has the potential to be very elegant and different.  

So, I’ll be gone for awhile.  In the meantime, Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

Oh, I LOVE your colour palette Cathy. I adore batiks, and have long wanted to do a crazy of just them exclusively.
