Tea Time - Dust Off a Quilt Book Blog Hop

It's the week of the minis here in the Sticks.
How about some tea?



Today is my stop in the 
Dust Off a Quilt Book
Blog Hop
Hosted by Bea at Beaquilter 


The idea is for the hop is to find an old quilt book on your shelf and make something from it.

Here is my lovely:



21 years?  Wasn't that just yesterday?
I really was into Debbie Mumm too.
That seems so long ago and so crazy.


Finished size:  15" x 14"

I purchased this book a couple year ago at an antique shop for 3 dollars
It has a quilt in it with baseball gloves, bats, and balls that I really want to make someday, but time wasn't on my side to do it this time.

So I chose this cute mini and updated it with more modern colors from my stash.

I'm not a tea drinker nor do I normally make mini quilts, but this one that you made is sooo CUTE! I really like it :)

tubakk said...

Oh yes, this is a really cute little quilt. I didn't know that it was possible to see so many interesting things from old books until this week.

Stitchin At Home said...

Oh what a cute quilt! Just goes to show what modern fabrics can do.

Tea & coffee drinker here so love the caffeine theme quilt.

Daryl @ Patchouli Moon Studio said...

Your quilt looked familiar because I have that book too and bought it new way back then. I love how fresh and new your quilt looks in the brighter colors rather than the country colors Debbie Mumm used. I may need to dust off that book myself and look at it with fresh eyes. Nicely done Carla.

That is just sooo adorable, love Debbie Mumm

I'm a coffee kind of girl...but this is just too cute. I think I have this book in my stash too. Oh no...another reason to go back to the dreaded shelf of books! LOL!!! Move over other projects!

beaquilter said...

Adorable quilt! I remember Debbie mumm and look at that hair!? Lol

Pamela said...

I'm pretty sure I either own or owned this book at one time as well! Such a cute little quilt!

The Joyful Quilter said...

What a darling little mini for your kitchen!! I may have to see if I can brew up a copy of this book for my tea-loving friends.

Carol S. said...

This looks really pretty, Carla! I love the fabrics in it, too. It's always fun to see what you create. xo

Nancy said...

I have that book, too. And I haven't made one thing from it. Your little quilt is so cute. Thanks for sharing it.

Vicki in MN said...

Well that brings back good memories! I own several of Debbie's books. She inspired lots of quilting for me.

Karrin Hurd said...

Cute project! I have a Debbie Mumm Christmas book

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Love Debbie Mumm - what a cute project and thank you for sharing.

Anita Jackson @ Domestic Felicity said...

So darncute! Who doesn't love teacups?

Carol said...

What a cute wall hanging, especially with the colors you chose! Besides, I'm a tea drinker, so this one holds special appeal for me. I have several Debbie Mumm books and made some of her projects "back in the day." Think I need to go through them again... :)

Jennifer Schifano Thomas said...

Super cute mini quilt. I still have a few Debbie Mumm books too.

Angie&Gary Short said...

Amazing mini! So cute! Enjoy your weekend! :-) :-) angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

tink's mom said...

Isn't it amazing what a few years can do to our perspective of what are the best colors for a piece. I believe I owned this book at one time, possibly still do ;-} Love what you did with this mini.

Leanne Parsons said...

What a cute little mini! Your version definitely looks more modern. It's amazing what a difference fabric choice can make :)

Theresa said...

I have a few Debbie Mumm books, always cute pattern. Love your mini quilt, fabrics are lovely as well

Marian said...

I had this book at one time... I miss all my Debbie Mumm books, she has the coolest projects and yours is no exception. I love the teacups and what a great job you did with the colors making it bright and cheerful. My apologies for being so slow to post a comment, but I'm still just getting around to all the blogs from last week's two different hops.

Hi Carla, what a lovely tea mini. It really looks great with the modern fabrics and the FMQ.
