Impromptu Sewing – Coffee Meter

Coffee Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies



I love the bright-coloured wildflowers of Spring.  In Southern California the season is short and I used to make the most of it by taking day trips to see them.  Sadly, due to extreme hay fever, the beauty of wildflowers has been all lost on me since I moved to Northern California.  Although I love to be outside A LOT, I now have to restrict myself to the indoors during Spring as much as possible, even with constant medication.  On top of this, I also got a bad cold (again!!) with a sore throat last week.  The cold and the allergy medicines together are making me so sleepy and that I am constantly feeling like a drained battery.

So I have been depending on caffeine more than ever to get anything done.  A drained laptop battery gave me the idea for this Coffee Meter quilt pattern.  I promptly drew it, drafted the pattern and made the block.  The block makes me giggle, probably because I always overwork my laptop which is also in need of a new battery.  The poor thing runs out of juice so quickly, now I know how it feels!

I am dusting off the old Coffee Chemistry block for the blog hop as well.  Remember this one?



Lunar Eclipse April 4th, 2015



Getting up in the middle of the night to watch and take photos of the recent lunar eclipse probably increased the need for coffee even more!



Happy Caffeinating…I mean Sewing!

    That’s just terrible about your allergies Soma. I hope you feel better as Spring moves past the heavy pollen stage.
    Your coffee cup is very cute and colorful!

    It’s difficult to choose a favorite between the coffee options! I’m going to check out this Have A Latte blog hop. I haven’t heard of it before, but if your blocks are indication, the blocks will be fun and interesting–I’m up for that!

    This is such a great idea with the coffee meter quilt! Love it! The style of the cup is the perfect shape for the meter. I hope the spring allergies subside soon for you and you can get back outside again.

    So sorry to hear about your extreme hay fever.
    Great coffee maker design and colours. I love the blues!
    What a striking middle of the night moon pic. I’d say that was a wake up call that was so worth it.
    I hope you are feel better very soon, Soma.

    Super Cute Coffee Meter pattern!! I was wondering how coffee and meter were connected!
    I have spring allergies, too, and hope you can get yours under control soon so you have your pep back again!

  • Ruth April 10, 2015 at 06:49

    This looks grat – so many colour possibilities too. I sympathise with the hayfever. antihistamines are my best friend in the summer!

  • Esther April 9, 2015 at 21:42

    Your coffee meter is so darn cute! And I love the pic of the moon! :)

  • Mary April 9, 2015 at 15:41

    I LOVE it!!! I can so relate to the feeling too.

    What a shame it is that you have to suffer what the hayfever. It is such a glorious time of the year to be outside. I hope you are feeling a bit better from the cold and sore throat by now.

    Great coffee cup block. I love the bright colors you used for the cup!

  • Kathleen April 9, 2015 at 13:03

    Looks like a good block to stitch up while munching on some homemade cookies :) I get headaches if I don’t have my coffee first thing in the morning.
    Love the lunar eclipse picture!

  • Susan April 9, 2015 at 10:08

    Great moon shot. It was really hazy here and not much color and just a partial eclipse.

    Love the colorful coffee cups. Reminds me of a real one I saw in a catalog quite a while ago on it changed color depending on the temperature of the beverage. Trees are my biggest allergen. I can’t have coffee, so my cup will have to be tea.

    I will pray you feel better soon. I know what chronic fatigue is like.

    What a pretty cup of coffee! Sorry to hear it’s origin is you feeling under the weather again though. I bought some pansies last week to plant so I could pretend but they are mad at me this week with all the cool weather and hard storms!! Look forward to seeing your projects, your fabric choices look great so far! I bet this would be beautiful turned into a color wheel with coffee cups. Love that moon pic!
