There is a wonderful woman named Mary from http://www.hopefilledlivingmagazine.com
who is looking for volunteers to make an
18” quilt square to create a “community quilt”
featuring various artists’ work.
So, I got to designing a piece that features coffee-themed batik fabric. A fabric tag completes the piece. Rag-tag sewing is contained in the upper left quadrant of the quilt square for a true mixed media effect. This quilt project is being made for people who are in hospitals or those who have fallen on hard times...What a wonderful surprise for Christmas, don’t you think? If you would like to join in, just let Mary know!
This story would not be complete without telling you that I have a new sewing machine that I did not have time to learn to operate yet...So, once it was designed, my husband sewed it for me!! (What a guy, huh?) Gotta love it!
There are several companion fabrics and one has coffee beans which I used to create the "Latte" tag, along with burlap and other embellishments.
I loved working with this theme so much that I also created one of my favorite tags--"The Espresso" tag for my Etsy shop.
I'm am linking this up to Dayle's wonderful challenge, which is The Airing of the Quilts!
