I Am Kinda Sweet On You Blog Hop

Hello!  Today is my day to share with you my project for the I'm Kinda Sweet On You Blog Hop.  Joan at Moosestash Quilting is the creator of this fun blog. Thank you, Joan, for being so sweet and letting me join in the fun!  It's always a treat!

Is there anything sweeter than a cuppa after a long, cold, winter's day?  Whether it's tea, coffee, or hot cocoa, it's the pause that refreshes.  There's nothing I look forward to more than being able to put my feet up with a hot beverage and just let the day roll away. 

This is a quilt I made for my co-worker.  She was having a rough time and needed a little perk, so I decided to gift her a quilt.

In my stash of embroidery files, I had a cute cup with hearts.  The finished embroidered block was 6 1/2".  I added a 3 1/2" border, which finished to a 12 1/2" block.  

The second block was a coffee cup motif I cut to 8 1/2" with a 2 1/2" border all around.  

I added a 2 1/2" and a 4 1/2" border, making the overall quilt measure approximately 44" x 72" -- just big enough to snuggle under and watch tv.  By the smile on her face, I think this sweet quilt brightened her day.    

And now it's time to sit back with a cuppa of my own and go visit the other participants in this fun blog.  I hope you do the same.
