Have a Latte Blog Hop - PERK POWER!

Welcome to Creatin' in the Sticks 
my stop in the 
Have a Latte blog hop.

How 'bout I pour you a cup of 
Perk Power?

That's how my grandparents always made coffee.  I remember waking up at their house and smelling the coffee perking on the stove.  That was the best smell...

I've been exploring new techniques and made the coffee pot and the handle of the coffee cup with bias tape.  Perk Power was made similar to the quilt, Love You to Pieces,  a finish in February.

Perk Power
was created with

The sashing is Robert Kaufman Kona cotton in black.

The quilting is whimsical swirls (thanks to my friend Vickie for inspiration) and straight line quilting from the pot to the cup to draw the eye all with
Aurifil 50 wt #4012

I just love that line, "Good Coffee, Good Day!"
(I have been better about labeling my quilts)

Moda marble for the back and a strip of Have a Latte fabrics to make it as fun as the front.  

The binding is a mix of Latte fabric and Kona black.

I'll be out on the patio enjoying a cup of java and checking out the other posts of the day.
