Cafe Mini Quilt

So I've been working on some of these mini quilts to take the opportunity to practice free-motion quilting.  This basically means I want to perfect my stipple.  I've come a long way..... but I've still a long road to go too.  


This one features a Metro Cafe print from Suzy Ultman.  Super cute!  I love the way the gingham brings out the blue coffee cup.


I even cut out a few cups and raw edge appliqued them on the border.  A little bit of spring colors to go around.  This mini quilt was a gift for a friend.
