Sweet Tea Quilt Top Finished!!

I have worked on this quilt called Sweet Tea forever!  I finally finished putting on the borders yesterday.  I am so glad to have this quilt top finished.




This is not a great pic but it's the best I could do with the lighting.   There are teacups around the border.  The fabric for the ribbon border is actually a dark burgundy ....it shows up darker in the pic.   I will have to add the "tea bags" after it is quilted and a few buttons here and there.  I posted about this quilt top here

I am so glad it is stitched together. There's paper piecing, machine applique and piecing in this quilt.  It feels good to have a large project completed!  Now I have to find the perfect backing for it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for visiting,

Hugs,
Donna

Hi, my sweet friend, You've been busy! The quilt looks so cute-I think my favorite teapot is the one in the middle row on the right side (maybe it is in each row?). Also your blog looks very bright and cheerful. We have a snow day today because of the wind and snow and Monday off--that means I have FOUR days at home! So I need to get up and get busy! Hugs to you.♥♫

I love it! I'm partial to tea cups and tea pots. I have a small collection of each.

Love the ribbon border. I've never done anything like that before.

Looove your new header!

It is great to finish up a project isn't it. I'm wondering if that ribbon border was a bugger to work with. It really sets of the design, though. You did a nice job.
