Snow of Jan 2010 - Coffee House

Here's the quilt I made yesterday during the "blizzard." A few years ago, I made a quilt for my sister using all fabrics related to COFFEE. For about a year or so before I made that quilt, I had been collecting the fabrics. Here is the one I made for was started during a Stashbusters class at Quilting Adventures in Richmond, VA, but I finished used the pattern variation in BH&G American Patchwork & Quilting (Feb. '07-Fresh Tradition). Now, what to do with the other 5 yds or so of coffee fabric that is left?!

My first attempt at using the long arm

Last week, I took the rental certification class at "A Needle Runs Through It" and this past Saturday, I went back and quilted my first quilt on the long arm machine. It was soooo much fun to do the entire quilt by myself. Usually I send them out to be quilted when they get larger than baby or lap size.
