The Coffee Cup Quilt...

I thought you might be interested in the finished quilt that Steve was sewing the sleeve and binding on in my last post. Some of you may remember seeing this quilt when it was in progress. I made it last spring in a Ruth McDowell workshop at an Empty Spools seminar. I call it Coffee Cup.

I tried it all over the house, but it ended up on this wall in our breakfast room. The kitchen (with the blue above the cupboards) is to the left, the table and chairs are to the right (you can just see the edge of the area rug). The mosaic with the broken plates is on the wall to the right of where I'm standing taking this photo.
It's really nice to finish - and hang - a new quilt!

Wonderful quilt - and it looks great in your breakfast room. How fortunate you were to get to take a class from Ruth!

I remember your post about that class! The quilt is gorgeous, and it looks great in the spot you found for it :-)

That is a great quilt and in a great spot - I love the way the greens match the canisters.

Loved the quilt. Your color choices are always so great. Did each student in Ruth's class develop their own pattern/quilt?

That quilt is just gorgeous.

We all worked on our own designs in class so there is no pattern for this quilt. I drew my pattern from a photo I took of a cup on a saucer on a square plate in a museum coffee shop. I made the colors more vibrant because I like them that way!
