Coffee, anyone?

I made this quick little Christmas gift for a friend who popped to mind when I first saw this coffee themed fabric:

Here’s the back:

She and I have traveled together, and roomed together at various Quilt Retreats over the last five years and she’s admittedly a little grumbly in the morning until she gets her coffee. She’s been known to manipulate and bribe me to go retrieve her coffee for her, just like her hubby does for her at home.

I quilted three little coffee mugs into each end of the runner, and quilted the rest with stippling and shadow quilting:

I hope you are enjoying having it on your table! I received a coffee related gift myself, in our small group grab bag exchange. This potholder and coffee cozy were made by Veronica:


Perfectly my colors, and I love the linen/cotton mix! Beth revealed our almost quilted American Heart Association quilt, that I told you about in November:

It will be auctioned off at the Des Moines AHA Gala in February. Great job on the quilting, Beth!

  1. All those are wonderful works! I wonder if a Diet Coke – themed table runner could be as pretty and cozy as the coffee one? Probably not, there is nothing cute about DC except for the guy model on one of the commercials a few years ago! Hope you have a cozy weekend. — michele

  2. What an awesome gift! I love coffee, so I can imagine this was a perfect gift for your coffee-loving friend. I especially love those coffee mugs you quilted into each end. And what an amazing quilt for the auction!

  3. I AM ENJOYING IT – I show it off to everyone, point out the coffee mug shaped quilting and basically brag up up as always! I love you for taking the time on me and Reed – you make me feel so special. I swear I will make you gifts in years to come when my little ones are a little more independent! šŸ™‚ LOVE Toni
