I'm in need of a little kick today to get me moving. What better design to get us jiving with java than Coffee Beans?
I'm actually not a coffee drinker. Hard to believe, right?
Nope, aside from a short span in college when the only thing keeping me from bombing my finals was a hot pot of coffee and snickers bars, I've really never cared much for the caffeine boost.
For the record, the caffeine and sugar never made up for a lack of enthusiasm about Biology. This blog is what happens to college dropouts who'd rather be quilting!
Inspiration - I recently purchased more fabric for this project and selected a new color that we really haven't seen enough of. Brown!
As soon as I saw the white thread next to the brown fabric I thought Coffee Beans!
Filler Design Type - Stacking. This design is like pebbling and will work just about anywhere on your quilt.
Difficulty Level - Beginner / Intermediate. The biggest challenge lies in maintaining the oval shape. Once you get the hang of the wiggly line through the center, it really flows quite nicely.
Directional Texture - No Direction. This is a background texture that looks great when placed anywhere on your quilt.
Suggestions for Use - Anyone in need of a Coffee Quilt? Pull dark brown, black, and cream colors from your stash and piece up a simple log cabin.
Quilt Coffee Beans over the black sections, Basic Spiral over the brown sections to represent swirling coffee, and Pebbles in a Stream in the cream sections to act like frothy cream.
Sounds to me like a yummy quilt indeed!
and make sure to tell your friends where you learned it.
Let's go Quilt!
