This first picture is the quilt I made for my Dad. I used approx 20 fat quarters (that’s an 18×22 piece of fabric for my non-quilting friends) I love how scrappy it turned out. I then had a horse print fabric that I couldn’t resist using for the backing, but then I couldn’t bare to cut it, so I framed it in. This began a little variation that I try to do on the back of most of my quilts now. 🙂
TOO much Licorice and way to many Lattes..
These quilts are are proof that I can become addicted to a particular pattern. I fell in love with a quilt I saw in a magazine a couple years ago (2008 to be exact)….and couldn’t get it out of my head. It’s called “Licorice and Latte” by Thimble Creek…. I made just a few of these. haha..and I am sure I will probably make a few more.. haha
This next quilt I made for my Grandpa…I again used fat quarters, and loved how it turned out scrappy too. He sent me a pix via text message of him using the quilt.. I have to share.. 🙂
This time for the quilt I used just 4 colors and I made this one for my Aunt, in Michigan.. She lives up in a snowbelt..So I thought she’d like this to keep her warm 🙂 I like how it turned out.
I made these for my neice and nephew, down in Utah….Caity and Derrick. I called Caity’s Bubble gum…its just reminds me of a pack of bazooka gum.. hehe…. I used only 3 colors..and the effect is different. I have to get Derrick’s in the mail.. I am a total smuck for still having it… Now that I have posted it here! I will mail it by the end of the week.. hehe (which is tomorrow) hahaha…
And my last Licorice and Latte…before I decided to ween myself off…(as you know we can all get…when we have had too much sugar and coffee)… is a gift I made for my good friend Karen that has moved to Virginia. We bowl together and I couldn’t resist making her a gift to take with her so she could remember all of her bowling friends here in Wa State. This has a bowling fabric for the border…I used fat quarters again but did an organized scrappy look. 🙂
I made these quilts between 2008 and 2010. I have recently received an old copy of EQ5 (a quilt design program) and I have started a variation to this quilt and we’ll have to see how it turns out. I really enjoyed how easy and fun it was to make this quilt and how many fun different ways you can make it look. I am sure I will enjoy Licorice and Latte again and again.:)
