That Moment of Terror

I don't know about you but my heart skips a beat when I make the first cut into the fabric for a new project.

This is the first block in this quilt - Licorice & Latte from American Patchwork & Quilting's Quilt Sampler Spring/Summer 2008.

The quilt is for my son - so another without florals. Boy am I busting out after this!

I took inspiration for the colour scheme from this bowl.

I may have to rename the quilt Iced Mocha Latte.

I'm also planning to make this quilt for a friend whose baby is due in December. Not really quilt weather in Australia but no matter.

Happy Stitching


  1. I love the colors! I must tell you though cutting into fabric is one of my favorite things, I get so excited for a new project and to see things come together that my heart goes pitter patter with joy!

  2. They are great colours and your son is going to love it. Great design too.

  3. Oh Ann...I am in love with your Iced Mocha Latte is absolutely beautiful, the colours are so complementary!!! I'm sure the Quilt for your Friend's baby will get plenty of use, so lovely it will be for the cold winters' days next year...Dzintra♥x

  4. I love love love, pale blue and brown together, gorgeous. I did a whole range of designs at college on these two colours :) Babies love quilts no matter the weather and if they can't be under them they can roll around on them :)

  5. Oh I know what you mean about that first cut! I don't think you need worry, it's going to be a beautiful quilt anjd the colours are gorgeous.

    The baby quilt is cute too, and yay, no pink! (I've been overdosed with pink!!)

  6. The bowl is beautiful and has led you to a great color combo for your quilt. You did a very good piecing job on the block.

  7. I love both quilts Ann. The blue and brown for you son will be stunning. I also love the name you are giving it.
    Sooo excited to see these come together.

  8. Lovely Quilts...Thanks Ann for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments regarding my win...really Appreciate it..

  9. I hate making that first cut too! I have so many fabrics which I love, but haven't used because I am scared to cut them and spoil them.

    I really like the colour scheme you are using - it's a really pleasing mix.

    Have a good weekend!
