Iced Mocha Latte


Thank you to everyone for your kinds thoughts and concern. I really appreciated your comments. Happy to report that I am fully recovered - which means I have to go back to work. Drats!

Because I made the cross shaped blocks first, the remainder of this quilt came together in good time.

I probably won't tell my son I've called it Iced Mocha Latte as he's a bit blokey. He'd say something like "Aahhh, maarrrmm!".

The backing fabric I found isn't quite the right shade of brown so I'm thinking I might dye it a slighter deeper shade.

Then I can quilt it. All 68 1/2 square inches of it. On my Janome QC6260.

Why don't I make miniatures?

Happy Stitching

  8. Just stunning Ann. I would keep the title to myself - maybe something with expresso?

  10. It's a gorgeous quilt and the name suits it perfectly, just tell your son to get over it!

    Quilting a quilt that size on a domestic machine is always a challenge, but I'm sure you'll manage.
