Tea Cup Blocks in coral and blue

With six months into the year, the Choo Choo Quilters Cuddle Quilt project has made strong and steady progress. The June block pattern is another easy-to-piece block called the Tea Cup Block. This block uses only two 10" squares of contrasting fabrics and will yield two blocks when assembled.

Color, Value and Pattern
  • The color scheme for these blocks is ivory/soft white, coral and blue. 
  • Value: when choosing your fabric pairing, the fabrics should be a light and a dark or a light and a medium
  • The CQ coordinators have specified patterned fabrics (not solids). 
The blocks can be made with all blue, all coral or a mix. Here is an examples of a possible fabric pull.
