I ordered a lovely pack of trimmings from Umbrella Prints with a view to entering the contest.

I had been thinking of how to showcase the pieces, and when they arrived I immediately thought of my collection of vintage coffee pots, which are decorated with patterned panels.
Here is my entry:
The pots are set against a background of recycled duvet cover, and the quilt is bound with some gingham I found in a charity shop - this seemed suitable for a vintage-inspired quilt that was all about using up what you have!
Edited to add: I pieced the pots just by cutting, sewing and trimming them as I went along, so they are more or less improvised though I used freezer paper to make templates for a few of the fiddlier sections. I am irritatingly spacially challenged when it comes to matching angled seams.
The steam is freemotion quilted with Aurifil wool.
Thank you umbrella prints for all the fun!
