Coffee Lover's Delight

Coffee Lover's Delight has been done for a while and has been patiently waiting for me to photograph it. (I never realized how much traffic drives down our street at 7:30 on a Saturday morning. In the twenty minutes I was setting up and taking pictures three different trucks drove past. I can only imagine what they thought of the crazy lady spreading out a quilt in the front yard.)

It took me a long time to decide how to do the quilting. After talking with the ladies in my guild they suggested doing Xs through each block. I really love how it turned out.

I've blogged about the making of this quilt herehere, and here. It's an interpretation of the Road to Tennessee by Mary Lane Brown.

The fabric is Java by Deb Strain. In order to get the two-tone blocks I used four charm packs, but I had half of two charm packs left. The corner stones and sashing are also from the Java line. I added 2.5" sashing around all of the blocks to separate the X and Os. The sashing wasn't in my original plan so I didn't buy it with the rest of the fabric. Unfortunately when I went to get my brown the LQS was out of the browns in the Java line, but I think it matches really nicely though.

The backing is also from the Java fabric line. 

One of my favorite parts of this quilt is the label. I love the surprise of this little coffee mug on the back. The date shows just how long this quilt has been waiting to get on the blog.

  5. It's a beautiful quilt, Kymberly! I know what you mean about the truck drivers, I am usually hanging quilts on my clothesline to take pictures, and people slow down when they go by!!
