Latte Blog Hop Day 7...My Day...

Have you enjoyed all the 
beautiful creations from this blog hop?
Joan of Moosestash Quilting has done such 
Thank you Joan!
Thank you Dan DiPaolo of Clothworks 
for making what is my new FAVORITE FABRIC EVER!!!!

Madame Samm...Not sure how you did it...
But this fabric you had chosen for this hop....
Just like you...

Well here we go!!!
Got your coffee?

This little bit is where it all started.
I wanted to do a little applique...and
so I drew out a few cups and the letters
and that was the beginning...YAY! for 

And then I remembered another quilt I had made
for my friend Patricia across the pond...
and then these began to appear...

And before too long...I had an idea
of how this was going to happen.

But the turning point was when my
sweet man came in and declared...
this was his favorite one I had ever done...

And there it was...
I knew I had a keeper.
I began thinking where I would place
it when I was done...
and then I realized...
This is the only place it could go....
Finally the sun came out today
but it was a mud field out there

I just cheated a bit and let the sun
shine in...

and of course...I hung it on my favorite
wall in my kitchen that my sweet man
built for me last year...

and I believe it will stay...

Thank you for visiting me today...
I have loved this hop and all the
wonderful items made...

Please Join Me for the rest of
Today's Lovelies...

  14. That is beautiful. And it looks like you found the perfect spot for it.

  20. I whole heartedly AGREE with hubby!!! When the hubby compliments a quilt with more than ,"That's nice" it is a day to mark down on the calendar. Something about this quilt spoke to him...perhaps it was the color scheme, the coffee theme, the placement, or maybe it was simply everything about this little gem. BTW, what size is it? If you told in your post, I missed it.

  29. What a fantastic quilt. It looks so wonderful on the special wall I wondered if you didn't have that all planned in the beginning - perhaps your subconscious was taking over. Best display of all those great fabrics!

  30. I love it, Lana! I am having a cup of coffee and catching up with the hop this morning and this ends up my last stop on the hop. So somehow I ended up "saving the best for last" ...

Great photos, too. Thank you for sharing in the hop ... :) Pat
