The Coffee Quilt

Here it is! Finally pieced. I tried to take picture on the floor but the quilt was too wide, so I have seen people take pictures on their frames and that worked! The next step will be start practicing with the frame and quilting it!

The borders took more time then I thought, but it’s worthed! It was my hubby’s idea to add blocks on the corners.

I was thinking that I didn’t make a mistake in the whole quilt and here I did. Thankfully it was very easy to fix!

I had to think how I want my top border to face and I decided to face all the mugs up, so it doesn’t spill the coffee! 🙂
I had fun working on the quilt and I am excited is pieced!

Happy sewing!

Coffee Quilt and Squaring Tip

I have been working on my “Coffee quilt”. If you remember I blogged about it here and I see it’s been almost a year. Good things take time, right? 🙂

I made four more blocks to make the quilt longer. How do you like the new placement of the blocks? I used Sudoku game to help me to place the blocks. I tried not to have the same color twice in a row or column. As you see, I made tiny mistake, but I still like how all colors work together!

Here is one of the extra blocks still on the hoop on my Brother machine. Coffee to go anyone?

Here is a Squaring tip I promised. I saw on Pat’s blog that she saw tutorial here how to use a freezer paper to square up blocks that are a little smaller then the size you want them to be.

I ironed strips of freezer paper to the sides I needed a little extra.

Then you square up to the desired size.

I have to say that I didn’t like sewing with the freezing paper so used it mostly as a guide and removed it before sewing that seam. I always like to try new tips! My MIL did a great tutorial how to block a quilt block, hop there to check it out!

Here is a close up how my embroidery blocks turn out:

I added sashing and now I have to add borders. Stay tuned for the finished quilt!

Happy sewing!
