Tea for Two


Yesterday's post got me to thinking about the fabric I used for "Elegant Tea Garden". It's "Tea for Two" by Northcott. It was their Quest for a Cure line, I think it came out in 2005.

I looked around my sewing room and discovered 14 different prints from that family of fabrics.



One quilt made from this family of fabrics is enough for me, so I'm giving away what's left. I'll divide this fabric up into Tea Time towers, I should have at least 4 I think.

So if you would like to own some of this lovely fabric, just leave a comment that says, "GO Colts" before Monday, January 25th. Ok, I'm kidding about the Colts thing, any comment would do, but would it hurt you to throw a little love their way?

I''ll announce the winners Monday.

  1. Aaaaahhhhh, Thelma, that is some bee-yoo-ti-ful fabric! For a chance at that, I might even perjure myself so far as to cheer on the Maple Leafs, since hockey is my game - I have no favourite in the fight with the Colts, so I will cheer them on as loud as loud ever was! GO COLTS!!!! Seriously, I'm drooling over those blues!

  2. No problem for me to say "Go Colts" - I'm a big Colts fan. In fact my status on Facebook right now is "GO COLTS"!!

    Love the fabric also but I'll give that up for a Colts victory on Sunday and on Super Bowl Sunday. It was my birthday the last time they plyed in the Super Bowl and the win was the best present!!

    I'm enjoying your blog!!

  4. Although I'm a Baltimore Ravens fan, I'm from Kansas City. About 10 years ago KC and Indy were in the playoffs and of course was rooting for KC but Indianapolis won. I remember it being the best game and I started paying attention to the Colts. My sister and nieces live in Tennessee and turned me on to Payton Manning. I think he has the potential to be one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the game. So yeah, I'm rooting for them this weekend, now that the Ravens are gone. (That is worth some fabric, I'd say!)

  5. Go Colts! DS doesn't want us visit him when the Colts are playing. They seem to lose each time we visit so we're staying at home. LOL!

  6. I can say Go Colts also. If you were a Saints fan, my husband would have a problem with me saying Go Saints. Thanks for the chance.

  7. I'll say GO COLTS also since there is such love between the NY teams and our beloved Phila. Eagles!! Thanks for a chance to win, the fabrics are beautiful.

  8. I love those fabrics !! . . .

    and I can easily say "GO COLTS!" . . . our NE Patriots were so so bad this year . . . they didn't deserve to be in it . . . and they're NOT . . .

    so I hope Payton does well !!

  9. Ow, oh, really? Go Colts?? How's that lol. Though I suppose since it's the Jets they're playing I can get away with a good Go Colts! Just don't ask for one in two weeks or I may end up divorced ;)
    I have a lap size triple Irish chain in similar fabrics that I really should finish.

  10. What an extremely generous thing to do for your Internet quilting friends. I'm fairly new to quilting (after retirement and moving to SE IL 4 years ago)but it quickly became my passion. Just had to drop you a note and tell you how much I admire the willingness of quilters to share their knowledge, skill and yes, even their stash. For anything that beautiful, I could change from a Bears fan to the Colts! Just kidding. Had to drop you a note and thank you for keeping my love of quilting going with you inspirational website and beautiful projects!

  24. Go Colts!! (Although I still think of them as the Baltimore Colts).
    Those fabrics would be perfect for a quilt I'm planning for my sister since her house is decorated in blue and white.

  26. Thelma, If you want the Colts to win, then Go Colts. I love your blog. You do such a good job with colors and such. I would love to win some of the blue fabric. I don't have a blog so if I win I will e-mail you my address. Thank you. Dortha

  27. Because I am from Boston and there's no chance of our Patriots I help you out "Go Colts" , how's that for you, lol?

    I absolutely love these fabrics. They are so pretty and definitely look like tea cup patterns.

  28. Even though the New York Jets beat Phillip Rivers' whiny tush last week and I owe them a debt of gratitude for putting the Chargers out of the playoffs - I am rooting for the Colts to win tomorrow - GO COLTS!

  29. Thanks for the chance to win such lovely fabric. We live in Eagles territory but my daughter is a huge Payton Manning fan - so it's Go Colts in this house. Enjoy the game and the rest of the weekend! Piece...

  30. Would it be inappropriate at this point to mention that I'm a Saints fan? :) I do agree with you though, that the fabrics are beautiful! My mom made me a bag out of that fabric when it first hit the shelves a few years back. It's still one of my favorite totes.

  31. Go Colts. Would love to win the fabric and I love your blog.

  37. I can say "Go Colts" because I don't know a thing about football.... You clearly have great taste in fabric, so I'll trust that your taste in football teams is equally placed :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  39. Thelma: I really enjoy your blog, and am so glad that you started it. Cupcakes and Daisies is one of my daily blog stops. So thanks for the stories, thoughts, snippets of your life, and all the inspiration. The blue-and-white fabrics are lovely! As for the Colts, I'd rather give a big cheer for Haiti Now, and hope that everyone has donated as generously as they're able. Best, D

  40. Whoa! What's gorgeous fabric. Go Colts! Well, I think they already went. They won, didn't they? I don't keep up with pro football too much. Just SEC college. Have a great day and please enter me in the drawing.
