This morning I went to the weekly gathering of the Stitching Grannies at Quilter's Paradise in Baldwin City and took the box of coffee fabrics, my rotary cutter, and the new pattern with me. I got all of the strips and units cut out before lunch! Yay me! After a yummy lunch from the Mexican place next door, I went home and jumped in at the machine to get this thing put together.
I had purchased several mixers to use with the coffee fabrics, but didn't use the browns or blue stripe prints shown here and only a little of pink fabric. This quilt is using lots more of those extra mixers with some fun effects.
I wonder what pattern will inspire me for the next round of coffee? Or have I had enough? Maybe I'll throw them all a string piecing project that's on the list of things to do. For now, I think two coffee quilts is enough, thank you very much!
More snippets from the sewing room soon,
