Sew Caffeinated Quilt

Today I want to share a version of my Sew Caffeinated pattern from my Trendy Table 2 book.  The original design is for a table runner, as shown below.

This is a really a fun quilt to pick out fabrics for – Just go through your stash and pick out anything that would make a cute coffee cup!  You only need a 5″ square for each cup.  Then select a small-scale print for the handle.



I have been wanting to make this into a wall quilt for my kitchen, even since I came up with this design.   Even though the pattern in the book is for the runner, I included this diagram in the book to show how it could be turned into a wall quilt.  Since my Photoshop skills aren’t that good, the diagram isn’t very interesting.

It’s much cuter in actual fabric!



And of course, the machine quilting adds so much.  I was a bit nervous about quilting this one, as all that plain grey really needed something fun!





As you can probably tell from the excessive number of pictures, I had too much fun making this quilt!  If you are interested in making this quilt, you can find the book here.  I used this background fabric.

As a little bonus, all orders placed in my online store during the months of October and November will receive my Mini Harvest Time pattern for free.  You can view that pattern here.

    Really cute, Heather! What a great way to use a bit of all your favorite fabrics in one quilt! I love the way you used both quilting and applique to create the steam. Your quilting is beautiful!

    I have become obsessed with this pattern and want to make it into a quilt for my quilt-loving, tea-loving daughter who turns 50 in Sept. The book with the pattern arrived today, so. my next step would be figuring out size and colors. I’m not sure I go for the grey background but the colored cups show up so well on it. Are the fabrics for the cups a certain line? Would they be available in precuts?
