Coffee Time anyone?




I forced myself to work on the coffee quilt this morning. I got the quilting done right before lunch. Got it trimmed and pictures taken. I was just sitting down to post them when DH called and said "What's for lunch?" So me and Ian quickly got dressed and rushed to meet him at the Mellow Mushroom. They have yummy pizza that they serve by the slice at lunch time. Perfect timing if you ask me!

So here are the pictures of the quilted top. I am going to use the left over backing to make the binding. It is all going on by machine. I do not have the time nor the patience to do the back by hand. I don't know if you can see the quilting or not in the second picture. It is just a big meandering.

I don't know what it is about browns, but they draw me to them -- love the fabrics in this quilt! WTG on another finish!

Ahhh! Now...don't you like coffee just a little bit, Sarah??? Hmmm?

Your FIL is so lucky! Your quilt looks great!

I remember you telling us about your border idea.... I thought that I was being totally efficient with a quilt/border a few years back...was going to piece the strips together first...then add them to the quilt. Only I thought that I would be adding them on and the outcome would be a "traditional" border look. Well...it looked just like yours...a total suprise to me! (Duh!) ;-) But heck...I loved it!

Thanks for bringing us along on your java journey! (Come on...you know you like it!)
