I’ve been meaning to making something for my mother-in-law, but I’m a little intimidated.
She’s from Iowa.
I have this notion that all people who come from the center of the country, and specifically from farms, also come from a rich quilting heritage. My mother-in-law certainly does. Her collection of hand-pieced, hand-quilted, family-made quilts is extrordinarily impressive. Her own sewing is phenomenal.
I shudder to think about my giving her a quilt.
But, on a past visit, she let me dive into her stash and walk away with a ton of fabric, so I really want to give her something “quilty” that she’ll enjoy. The floral fabric in this block came from her stash. I don’t think I can call it vintage, but it certainly has a vintage feel that compliments the modern feel of the Monaluna Waffle in pink.
My mother-in-law loves drinking tea and has a lovely collection of teapots. I think I might start a tradition of giving her teapot wall hangings or placemats or cushions.
What do you think? What would you do with this little teapot?
