Tea For Two



Our quilt guild had a challenge whereby the quilter had to incorporate a beautiful floral fabric into their piece. Everyone participating would receive some of the beautiful fabric. The theme was a well-known song. I was on vacation; and when I came back, nothing was left of the material. When I whined, some ladies took pity on me and gave me some small pieces of the fabric which reminded me of the tea service I brought with me from Europe. I immediately envisioned a table set with two cups and a teapot in the pattern of the fabric with two people enjoing the tea and heart-shaped steam coming out of the teapot. My husband and I had tea when we were dating. The challenge song was Tea for Two, thus rules were achieved. I had to piece the pot a lot, but nobody ever thought it was out of necessity.
