Kerry's Afternoon Tea - Patchwork 318 Bee - October

Tea pot pattern from Kumiko Fujita's Patchwork 318. The tea cup was improvised, mainly because I could not piece the handle this small!

Block measures 6" finished.

 

In my imagination Kerry has a lovely collection of mismatched vintage cups and saucers on the kitchen table for afternoon tea. She will probably be busy perusing the paper to find where the next car boot sale will be ;-)

 

I am a little unsure about the fabrics I pulled for this block Kerry. I'm worried that instead of looking thrifty and vintage they just look a bit drab.

I knew I wanted to use the little piece if linen with Berry on it but there isn't that much contrast with the background fabric. I think it is 'Mrs March' as well as the main fabric of the tea pot? And what was I thinking a teapot with a teapot on it? not sure!
