I have been a collector of vintage Fiestaware for quite a while and decided that it was time to merge my two passions. I've started to make some paper piece templates of my more favorite Fiestaware shapes and this morning, put together this disc pitcher block. It took more time to sketch up the pattern than it did to make the block itself, something that I didn't expect.
I'm not sure what I'm going to make out of this yet, suggestions are welcome, however I do think that when I quilt it, I will emulate the telltale Fiestaware rings in my stitching as indicated above on a trace paper overlay.
Kona cotton 1370 Tangerine was used for this pitcher. I have matched up all six of the original Fiestaware colors to my cut-up Kona cotton solids samples and have listed the selections below for your use. Maybe you too will be inspired to make some Fiestaware quilt blocks. Both light and dark values are provided should you prefer a one over the other.
