Have a Latte

 

 



Welcome to my day of the Have a Latte Blog Hop.  A million thanks to Madame Samm for another wonderful hop and also to Joan for being our wonderful CHEERLEADER for this hop.  Hasn't it been inspiring? 

The great fabrics that I used are from Dan Di Paolo's and Clothwork's line of Have a Latte fabrics.  They were such fun fabrics and the colors are sooooo me!

Shortly after this hop came into being I had an e-mail from Jamie of  Busy Bee Quilts.  She had a book and was wondering it might be something that would interest me.  Wow!!  The timing was perfect and she mailed it off to me.  Aren't blogging friends the best?  The paper pieced teapots became coffee pots to me.  Anyway,  the dancing pots quilt ended up at 60" square.  I love the pots with their little buttons for lids.

I’ve had this mug forever and it was perfect for the hop so I made a mug rug to go with it.
