What are you most proud of? I'm pretty chuffed with the hexies and all the hand sewing involved. Is quite addictive. I can see the attraction in making an entire quilt using this method.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I had my time again, I think I would hand appliqu the teapot on to the background fabric rather than using my machine. That's primarily just because I think I can be more accurate by hand rather than machine (all those turning corners, too many places for little inaccuracies!) the paperpiecing I found quite easy. I just traced Amy's pattern onto hard cardboard, then used that as a template to cut out a stack using paper. The paper I used was from an old calendar, it was thicker than normal photocopy paper but flexible enough too.

Very nice!

I'm feeling the same thing. I'm also a "copy the picture" person but looking at everyone's good ideas is helping me a lot! I didn't see the teapot at first but it is definitely cute!

I love this block! the teapot is almost 3-D (after you look at it a minute).. and way to work with the background fabric! Yes please I'll have a cup! :D

VERY cool! At first I didn't notice the tea pot, and the it just jumped out at me.
