Cafe Au Lait #4

I have done a bit more on the "Cafe Au Lait" quilt inspired by looking through Carole Samples Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches
As the saying goes " when in doubt, read the book".
The coffeepot on the left is from the book, I traced it onto tissue paper and stitched the outline of the coffeepot through the paper onto the block then removed the paper.
I embellished the coffeepot with gold floss and copper beads.
I stem stitched in the word "Cafe" on the dark chocolate fabric piece, now I'm thinking of adding words like "Mocha" and "Latte".
Beneath the centre print I stem stitched in two hearts with Fargo roses and added the eyelet teadyed lace with the grape ribbon threaded through.

I must tell you about this great thread that came in the kit, I had never used it before.
The thread is lovely to use, the one I have is called Fall Foliage #146, an overdyed variegated cotton floss by Needle Necessities I love it and will have to get some more in different colours.

  1. Needle Necessities is wonderful - I have it all. If you have a nearby friend, the skeins are so generous and easy to divide, you each buy one and swap half. Over a cup of coffee.

  2. Great idea Chloe, wish you lived close by.
    Maureen G, do you have any?
