Coffee's (nearly) Up

I have nearly finished my coffee quilt with the yummy bistro fabrics. Just the binding to go. It has been made especially for my wonderfully hubby Steve, who makes the best coffee. The quilt is easy to make with eight little coffee cups around it.
It will be a perfect quilt for the coffee lover or just a rich tablecloth in the home dec. colours. The pattern will appear in Country Threads 9-6.
We will have kits on sale in the next week or so.
I used the red panel on the back with the red border - doesn't it look great?

We have been busy this week with more and more yummy stuff from Moda and Nutex arriving.
I am quite addicted to Jelly Rolls. I loved the colours in Fresh by Deb Strain. Too many wonderful fabrics, not enough time. I have told myself I have to finish a couple of projects before I open another Jelly Roll.

Don't forget about our giveway. Just post a comment anywhere on the blog for your chance to win this great Threads Pack worth over $35.

Hi
I know what you mean about jelly rolls - they are great, so versatile, and you are not left over with so much fabric.
