Tea Cup Mini Mini Quilt and Card – Made with Crafted Appliqué

Crafted Appliqué is a new method invented by Lara of BuzzinBumble. I have decided to try it with my tea cup pattern (the same that is on my Tea in the Rose Garden mug rugs). The cup handle is very thin and I wanted to verify how easy it would be to sew it. On my mug rugs, I sew the appliqués with the blanket stitch to keep them into place and to make sure that the fabric would not fray.

With Lara’s method, I was able to sew the appliqués with only one straight stitch, along the edge. One single line of stitching for the handle. I must say that the method passed the test with a high score. It does not mean that I will now avoid the blanket stitch, because it always gives a special look to the appliqué. But, if you are in a hurry or want to work fast, Crafted Appliqué is perfect.

I could not resist adding some lace below the cup. It goes so well with the fabric covered by little flowers.

The binding was made with bias cut in the same flowery fabric and stitched by hand. Being a very small quilt (5 3/4″ x 6″), I did not give myself much trouble with the quilting…

I also made a card. I find that a card and a small quilt that can act as a mug rug or a coaster are a great combination and make excellent gifts.

  1. France, this is the prettiest pattern and I bought it! I really love your mini quilt and card and the way you accented the appliques with lace. It’s a really sweet gift giving idea and all the ones you’ve made have been very inspiring! Thank you for showcasing my book like you have! I am very grateful.

    • Wow, Lara, thank you! After I read your book, I began to think that I could revisit my patterns and make them again with your technique. Just for the fun. 🙂 More are coming!
