Project # 5, completed in March was a simple quilt. Time was at a premium and I felt the need to get something done!
This quilt, nicknamed “Coffee Quilt”, has six panel prints all with a coffee theme. The sashing fabric is a coffee bean print, and the borders are a complementary brown check. I bought the fabric in 2006 in Olean, New York when my family was on a ski trip to Ellicottville. I prefer to ski a half day while everybody else skis a full day. So while they ski, I entertain myself by shopping for fabric. Good trade-off, I figure!
The quilt was quilted with concentric circles in the panel prints and a dense stipple over the rest of the quilt. It did not take a long time to complete this quilt and getting a finish primes the pump!
Take Away Lesson:
When it is hard to get started on a project, select something easy. It generates a feeling of accomplishment. Once in motion, it is easier to stay in motion. Sounds like I learned something in Grade 11 Physics that directly applies to my life as a quilter! Amazing!
