    My wife Liz is a quilter. She got hold of some coffee related fabric (colours, patterns) and ... Ta Da!

    Of course quilts have quilting, patterns or random squiggles sewn through the quilt to stop the batting from moving. If you have a coffee quilt you would have a coffee pattern so this one has coffee cups. Sixteen of them in fact.

    Hand made quilts have names so this one is called "For the love of coffee".

    Now you may be wondering about the title of the thread, and if you haven't yet worked it out here is the answer :

    Fourteen green coffee bean bags were reused in the construction of the quilt. So thanks to the dedication of my lovely wife, I am warmer, the environment is better off, and the caffeination of the world continues unabated.

    My wife made me a fitted quilt to go over the top of my Bezera Galtea a few years ago. I'll take some pics of it later.
