Coffe Koozie Tutorial by Fat Quarter Shop

I'm not a big fan of coffee but I love a nice cup of tea and Starbuck's hot chocolate makes me fell so good!!!
In order to prevent slippery cups from falling down or burnt hands  from hot cups, this Coffee koozie is just wonderful.

It's very easy to make and you can use your scraps. I used a mini charm pack, Double Chocolate from Moda fabrics.

It can be made in a breeze, sew the squares together, use some left over fabric for the back and if you want to be on the safe side ,you can use  either a thick ou a double layer batting. Afterwards, quilt it as you like. I used a decorative stitch along the seams.

Then, just use the pattern from Fat Quarter Shop, click HERE in order to find it. If you have any doubts you can always check the great You Tube video that  Fat Quarter Shop made.

Et Voilá! A beautiful Coffee Koozie to use everywhere, to offer to a friend

or just to enjoy while you're drinking your favorite beverage.

The table topper I made for my daughter's new apartment is finished. Well is almost finished. I still have to sew  and lock all the loose threads.

Instead of a hand sewn binding I used another technique and sew my biding on the right side with a decorative machine stitch. It's a very quick way to sew the biding and the final result is quite good.

To quilt the border I first made some free hand designs with a water soluble pen and then free motion quilted it following the lines as accurately as possible.

Moving forward

I'm back in business.
My daughter is moving into a new apartment next week. She and her boyfriend are moving to a small apartment in the hospital residence. they won't have to share it with no one else, YEAH!
So I had to make some stuff to help her decorate it.

A table top ready to be quilted

I had to stop my FMQ last year due to an elbow tendinitis, but today I got adventurous and tried it again
 As you can see I'm a bit pout of practice but I think my daughter won't mind
I'm half way through.
