    A few years back ( like 4 I think) I bought a pattern and fabric to make my brother a quilt. My brother lives in Seattle and gets a STARBUCKS every day...he loves his espresso...so I bought coffee themed fabrics. The pattern is called vanity squares and it by cindy hayes..you can buy the pattern at www.lorrainetorrence.com It is a very easy pattern I made mine queen sized..I don't have enough floor space to take a nice picture....The pattern actually called for 32 fat quarters ..I still have 8 left ...so I think they over estimated that a bit....or they just like to have more variety..but I think mine has plenty of variety...so I guess that is up to whomever makes the quilt.

    I like it! Is "Vanity Squares" the name of the pattern? Who is it by?

    What a cool idea to make for a man. This one has some interesting fabrics in it too. Nice work! Did you give it to him yet?

    Interesting pattern. I can't see where there are rows in the quilt. I really do like the design and you did a great job working in the coffee fabric, plus the other fabric colors blend in just perfectly. Great job!!!!

    I like the rich browns & stripes...it matches so well. Gotta run get my last cup of coffee & heat it up again. You come up with really nice patterns & combine them w/just the right fabrics. As the teens say, "You Rock".........

    It would make me want to jump up and run to the coffeemaker for a fix every time I saw it... I'm doing it right now...
