getting ready to baste, taking up my whole living room floor
There's this great coffee roasting company from near my home town and they make this great coffee bean called Morning fog lifter. My mom drinks it and turned me on to it and I think originally my grandma drank it. I have great memories of both my grandma and my mom grinding the beans, drinking their coffee and reading the morning paper.
I started collecting fabric for
a coffee themed quilt a few years ago from a now closed quilt shop here in San Francisco called black cat quilts. When I went to my first quilt retreat back in 2008 I grabbed the fabric and a pattern I got from another favorite quilt shop call Quiltin Cousins in Pismo Beach, Ca. With a few fabrics my mother-in-law let me raid from her stash I had fabric for a top.
3 years later I finally finished and gave it to my mom. Here it is:
I love how it turned out and my mom loves it, so all in all a job well done
