Never Underestimate the Power of Play!
We don’t often post quilts or other projects unless there is a pattern available (someone ALWAYS asks for the pattern!). We do make an exception now and then when something special comes along, believing it’s better to share what inspires us, hoping it might inspire you too, rather than not share at all.
That’s the case with this “Coffee Time Quilt” by Taunja Kelvington of Carried Away Quilting.
A tutorial is now available for this charming little quilt. Scroll to find the link.
We adore the simplicity of this quilt and the beautiful antique lace and button embellishment.
Taunja started with 2 1/2″ mini charm squares and had an enjoyable time playing while she created the overall design. It’s simple but very charming, especially with the addition of the vintage crocheted lace she found in an antique shop.
This little quilt is proof that sometimes simple truly is best. And, it’s a reminder that there’s a lot of value in taking a break from patterns and deadlines and just playing, as Taunja eloquently expressed in her article.
Taunja created a tutorial for this charming little quilt since we originally posted this article. The quilt in the tutorial is done in pink and white – lovely for a little girl’s tea party.
It also features buttons in the corners and crocheted lace found at a local antique shop.
The finished quilt is 18 1/2″ x 18 1/2″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
