Coffee + Me = Awesome Quilt Pattern and Winners

I finally had a chance
to write a pattern
for a quilt that I had
sitting around the house.

I have loved the pattern to
this quilt for quite some time
and never had a chance to write it up.

I sent the pattern to one
of my dear quilting friends,
she wanted to sew it up for me
to test to out.

I never expected that she would
have the quilt top completed within a day's time.

Then, she had it
quilted and bound within a week.
I absolutely love the way hers
turned out, but I am not going to show you
the whole quilt. 
I will let you stop by her blog and check out
her version of my pattern.

I am really loving the
cup and heart
in shades of aqua and red.

If you would like to pick up  the pattern it is one sale
until February 14th.
Your little Valentine's present from me. 
You can find it HERE.

And if you haven't notice the other goings
on we have a new Block of the Month
happening as we speak.
Sun, Sand, and Sea.

Here is the first block,
Hello Sunshine!
It is not too late to join in the fun,
since we just began on
February 1st.
The pattern can be found HERE.

We are having prizes for
this hop as well, so.. (hint, hint)
You might be lucky enough to
pick yourself up
a lovely little gift for yourself.

Also, I am drawing
the winners for
the December and January link party
for the In Our Garden BOM.
They are Donna Valencich
and Angela Belcher.

Donna Valencich and Janice Grygla will each
be sent a beautiful set of fabrics
of Henry Glass fabrics.
I am sure she will have a ball with them all.

Angela will be getting
a thread set donated by Aurifil threads
and a handy thread chart.

Thank you to all of you who kept up
with the block of the month
and I hope you plan on joining us for
the 2017 BOM.

A Bushel and a Peck Table Topper

Not only have I been busy getting the
Sun, Sand, and Sea Block of the
Month ready, but I have also
been working on a table topper
for Thermoweb. 

With some of the most adorable fabrics,
I do believe that I have seen. 

It is Just Another Walk in the Woods.

It has such a beautiful mix of pinks, reds, whites,
and a lovely green. (One of my favorite colors).

I spent a lot of time quilting it up.
It has to be one of my favorites.

I am thinking of adding
a little hand-quilting border to it.

Here is the whole topper.

"I Love You a Bushel and a Peck"
a favorite that was sung when the kids
were little.

You can grab the free pattern
over at Thermoweb
Stop and leave a comment while
you are there.

And if you missed the first block to the
Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM

In Our Garden Block of the Month Quilt

I need to finish the In Our Garden Quilt before
we begin our new adventure starting in just a week.

There were a total of 24 blocks with
a few bonus blocks thrown in the mix.
I uses 25 of them to finish this
Block of the Month.

I sashed the blocks on the top and bottom with  a 2 1/2" x 12 1/2".
Then, I  added a 2 1/2" square to 2 more 2 1/2" x 12 1/2" pieces.
This makes little corner stones to the blocks.

I wanted a large quilt to fit on a twin
sized bed, so I cut 2 1/2" squares for the pieced row.

The completed quilt is 68" across by 84" long.
I absolutely love the finished top.
I can't wait to get it all quilted up
and ready to grace one of the kid's beds.

You can find all the pattern links Here

Thanks again to
for sponsoring my quilt and this hop.

Stop in at Just Let Me Quilt
to check out Carol's quilt. 

In just a week, we start our new Block of the Month
I am the first stop on
the Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM,
so please join me on Feb 1st.

Would you like a little peak at the
background layout, so you can
begin gathering those fabrics?

We will be of course adding applique to
the quilt.  So, be prepared for a lot
of fun in Sun, Sand, and Sea.

Hope you are planning to join us.
