Design Wall Monday 4-18-11

This project was featured in McCall's Quilting March/April 2011 edition. It's called Cafe Espresso and is a set of 4 placemats plus the coordinating napkins. The designer is Stephanie Sims and the fabric collection is Daily Grind Fabrics by Barb Tourtillotte for Clothworks.

The directions are perfect and I was able to cut everything out and machine piece it in just a few hours. All that is left to do now is sew the hem on the napkins, quilt the placemats (am still debating whether to machine quilt or hand quilt), and bind the placemats.

I ordered the kit from D's Sewing Center & Quilt Shop because after doing an internet search for the fabrics, it seemed easier (and cheaper after paying shipping charges) to simply order the kit.

While I love the smell of coffee, and coffee "stuff", I detest the taste of it! hahaha Still, I think they are neat looking.

Am linking up to Patchwork Times today for Design Wall Monday.


  1. That looks like a great project and would be perfect for gifting.
