Java Bistro

Finally I've got a finished quilt for 2009. I started this one last year, but with the holidays just didn't get it finished. I wanted to get it finished up in case I didn't have enough fabric left to finish and could get more before it sold out. This time I quilted through the squares and I like it this way too.

I had a few squares left from the first quilt, so I also made this wall hanging. These will be a gift set for a birthday later this year.

I decided to practice on this one, so I tried a steam type dwirl and it turned out rather interesting. I would probably do them all the same way if I did it again, but I really didn't mind this type of quilting. I was more afraid of running out of thread than anything.

Love this fabric! I wish they had it in a red colorway as it would be perfect for my DIL's kitchen!

I love your quilt. Mine is measuring 100-inch square so there is a lot of spaces. Have not done the quilting but looking at yours, I may just use the teal variegated Sulky thread that I have.

I bought some charm squares of that fabric a couple weeks ago. I am thinking that I will make some placemats for the new home.. smiles. Keith really liked the fabric too so that makes it even better
