Coffee Time!


Coffee time!

I designed this small table runner / mini quilt using two of the great fabrics from Clothworks Have a Latte line.    I ordered three of the prints and fell in love with the swirls so I made some giant coffee mugs!  (The coffee bean fabric is on the back of the mini.)




I put together a quick pattern for the Coffee Time table runner - check out my Elm Street Quilts blog for the details.



 I loved this fabric so much that I put together a little bag for my briefcase to keep things all corralled.



There are two zippered pockets inside, one covered and one using a clear plastic.



I will be putting this bag to good use!


The full schedule for all the blog hop can be found at Joan's blog.  Thanks to Joan for being a terrific cheerleader along the way and for Samm for all of her continual support.

Now grab your cup of favorite morning caffeine and join me to tour the other lovely ladies on the hop -
