'COFFEE BREAK' Table Toppers

I have always been a coffee addict.... I just love coffee beans and the aroma it emanates as they get roasted or brewed!.. As well,anything and everything in coffee theme attracts me no end ! Coffee mugs are always hunted for during shoppings and for me nothing is more gratifying than relaxing with a cup of strong steaming coffee on a rainy day!..It was during one of these treasure hunts at my favourite fabric shop that I came across these addictive Cafe prints! It was available in two shades of brown,one in 'Full City Roast'(the early stage of a 'Dark Roast'.Most coffees achieve their fullest flavour development here or in the 'Dark Roast' stage) and the other in a softer Medium Roast ("Half City')version.. I fell head over heels in love with this theme and without a second thought purchased both of them.. After bringing it home the confusion was how to transform them into something useful . Since the theme was 'Cafe' nothing would have been more appropriate than converting them into placemats,table runners or mug rugs that would make coffee breaks a real fun time!
Here I have made a large rectangular table topper, completely quilted..A beige - cream ric - rac has been attached all along the binding..I sewed the ric rac before attaching the binding and then the binding was sewn along the center of it.Then as usual folded it backward and hemmed it using hands.

The next two are smaller mug rugs , both of them quilted in simple lines and all around the coffee mug prints .Binding has been done in self printed off white.





By now I felt like taking a break from quilting..So made a few more mug rugs without quilting.. Have used heavy interfacing to give them more body and top stitched all along the edges using invisible thread.



Back in a mood for patchwork and quilting again!:)

Two medium sized table toppers in simple three dudes and pinwheels !I really love that dark coffee brown fabric with tiny white cup designs..Since the polka dotted fabric contains olive green dots I preferred to go for a shaded olive binding to impart contrast.The border is shaded coffee.





Finally,a clutch made from left over scraps!Has two slots and one zipper unit inside .Magnetic closure has been attached.




Hmmm already tired of working with browns ! But the addiction to caffeine remains unaffected ! :)

Far away behind the hills I can see the sun slowly sinking and its getting colder.

The chirpy sparrows and finches have started to perch on the trees outside

And for me,I guess its time for an evening brew !

Thanks a million for having taken a few minutes of your precious time to drop in here and post lovely encouraging comments:)

Take care darlings

Until next time,

Enjoy every moment confined to your sewing rooms,not forgetting to take coffee breaks ;)...........Luv,Mini
