Dijanne Cevaal's Teapots

I love the work of textile artist Dijanne Cevaal, so I was ecstatic when I was able to purchase one of her small works, which she had shown on her blog. It arrived in the mail a few days ago.

Here is a photo of "Teapots". Isn't it exquisite? The colours glow like exotic jewels, the quilting is amazingly intricate, and the design reminds me of all that is mysterious about the Middle East. Pure magic!

Thank you, Dijanne, for allowing me to show it off on my blog.

BTW, Dijanne has other works for sale. I also like her Pomegranate series.


  1. Ooooh!! I do like that. Tell us more about how it was done etc.

  2. The fabric looks as though it was either hand dyed or painted, and is a lovely soft fabric. i don't know what it is, but it's not cotton. The plate and teapots are all drawn with stitching and quilting. She has designed it herself - they weren't there printed on the cloth. All the background has been quilted with tiny intricate quilting patterns. All the blue you see that forms the plate, is quilting.
    Amazing work!
