Coffee First

Coffee is first in the morning and it’s the first of two new collections Sunporch Studios is releasing this fall: Coffee Helps (now available) and Start with Tea (coming in October).

Each collection includes three patterns: Sentiment Panels, Print&Quilts, and Paper Piecing.

Here are some sneak peeks to stir up some excitement.

For my first mug rug, I chose fabrics from the new Sundrops collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics that I wrote about in this post: Sewing with Jolly Bars and Cake Mixes. Sundrops is currently sold out, but there are many other gorgeous collections still available. My sweet addiction to Jolly Bars continues!

Serving up breakfast with style!

Serving up breakfast with style!

Once my coffee is brewed, I treat myself by serving it up in style. This little tray reminds me to make moments, not just mug rugs.

“Coffee is a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.” - Gertrude Stein, American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector

Coffee Second

It was definitely a Monday when I was making this second mug rug for our new coffee sentiments collection. I had to laugh because everything that could go wrong, did go wrong as I worked on it. Let’s just say that the seam ripper got a workout during the making of this mug rug. The sentiment, Life Happens, Coffee Helps was a little too perfect for the day.

I still have to finish sewing the binding in back, but I took pictures to give you a sneak peek.

Hmmm…You had me at cupcake…would be a cute mug rug sentiment panel, too.
