This quilt derives its name from the cocoa cup backing fabric.   This fabric is warm, cozy, cute and definitely jump starts my chocolate cravings.  The piecing pattern is a disappearing 9 patch made with coordinating fabrics.  The snowflake quilting pattern is a perfect choice for this winter quilt.  I need to quit blogging and go get a cup of hot cocoa.

Can you identify each of the princesses in this charming quilt?  Each panel was fussy cut and framed.  I was so excited to use this royal edge to edge to design with crowns, wands, and ribbons.  The back is a white soft minky and the perfect canvas for the quilting pattern.   My only disappointment was that I didn’t get to see the look on the little granddaughters face when she received this quilt.

Another fantastic color quilt!  I love the way the squares look like they are stacked on each other.  It was so much fun to quilt the spirals and spikes.  I used a variegated thread and it shows up splendidly on front and back.    Cards anyone?

This quilt has the back and front pieced in a similar pattern.  Dark blues, light blues and creams give this quilt a sense of serenity. A beautiful flower pattern adds dimension and completes the quilt.  The customer was so excited when she picked up the quilt, she couldn’t decide which side to show when she put it on her bed!    My work here is done.

What a labor of love.  This piecer sent out fabric squares to all the wedding couple’s closest family and friends and had them write the best wishes, sign it with a permanent fabric pen and return it.  She then created this quilt top with framed squares and a featured block in the center with the monogram and wedding date.   I had so much fun bringing this quilt to life; adding ruler work and an amazing background fill. The combined effect is sensational.
