Have A Latte Blog Hop




Welcome and Have a Latte !

When I signed up for this hop I had sew many ideas.

Life got in the way and time started to run away.

As I was getting down to the wire, I was feeling stressed.

Time to stop and enjoy the fabric.

Quilting is supposed to be fun.


So my quilty muse and I had a late night latte listened to the fabric.


The red in this line is so gorgeous.

The cups on red is my favorite.

I awoke with a quilty dream in my head and a new plan!


I had another cuppa ...


...  and laid out the fabrics ...


... put on my temporary reading glasses...

(Yes, I aw still waiting for my new prescription tri-focals.
The lab is very slow. )

... and started cutting strips ...


... and sewing ....


Here is my new table quilt!


I started cutting this quilt Saturday morning and finished the binding Tuesday at noon.

This is one of the quickest and easiest quilts that I have ever designed and made.

Did I say it was FUN?  Oh, yes it was!

This quilt is 50" square and is intended to be  a gift for a
beautiful gal with a square pub style table.

To make it more useful I made it two sided.


The reverse side is made from a patriotic Stonehenge fabric and a panel.


I quilted this on the reverse side and started the large circular quilting around the
eye of the eagle.


This side of the quilt would make a great wall hanging.

Here is the quilting on the Latte side.

I loved this quilting technique and am going to do this again on a large quilt.

Please be sure to share a latte 
with all these lovely quilty ladies today ...

  18. The first thing that caught my eye was the quilting - love it! Did you do it on a short or long arm? I love those quilty dreams especially when they translate so well! I had one myself but we are still working on the translation.
    The patriotic side is also amazing.
