Do you love coffee? I do – especially that first sip in the morning. So what did I do? I made a little art quilt in honour of that AHHHHsome moment: the first sip.
I pieced the background to loosely approximate my kitchen – yellow tile counters – got the grid effect with a paintstick rubbed over a plastic utensil that I found in the kitchen drawer.
I paid homage to my very favorite coffee mug by using its image in this piece – printed then machine appliqued onto the background. Thread painting, acrylic paint touch up here and there added texture and interest.
Added a little glitter just for fun
Glitzed up a few coffee beans for the full effect and free motion stitched my sentiments.
