Acorn Cottage - Coventry & A Cuppa

We’re getting close to completing the ‘tour’ of all the quilts in my new book with Martingale, ‘Acorn Cottage’… & today I’m featuring two quilts that have two of my favorites… stars… & (in my case) coffee!!!

First up is my ‘Coventry’ quilt. This is a great quilt for all levels of quilters. It features the classic Sawtooth Star blocks (one of my favorites) & a fun little bit of piecing on the border that adds a fun little ‘dotted’ design to frame the airy field of stars.

I first made Coventry years ago - featuring a beautiful 3 Sister’s Moda fabric called Roman Holiday. And, while I still love that quilt… & I bring it out every winter, I always wanted to make it one of my own fabric collections & with a softer palette… & this is that quilt! The beauty of this design though - is that it looks great in any style of fabric. It’s a classic design & perfect to make it your own with whatever your favorite fabrics are.

Another quilt design - where there are two size options available in the book is ‘A Cuppa’.A CuppaA Cuppa mini

As I write this post… my ‘a-cuppa’ is right next to me… as every day, my day starts with my coffee! (I love the stitchery I recently saw that says, “First I drink the coffee… then I do the things…” - I can so relate to that!) But if you’re a tea drinker, or if you fancy a latte or a mocha… you’re covered with this design! It features two different styles/sizes of cups, & I also included a little plate - just in case you like treats with your cuppa!

So there are two more!!… & I’ll be back very soon with the final two designs for Acorn Cottage!

Thanks for stopping by!
