Coffee & Cream Quilt Wraps Up 2020

My last quilt of the year is all wrapped up.
The plan is to secretly slip it under the Christmas tree when
visiting my friend (recovering from surgery) early next week.
 Hopefully the food I'm taking over will make a good
distraction while I play Mrs. Claus.  Even better if I
can get my hubs or a son to help out.

For the quilting design I again used the swirls to give
the appearance of steam hovering over the cups.

When I found these black/cream fabrics on clearance
I thought they'd be perfect for a two-tone quilt so I took all
they had.  I'm so glad!  I love the flowery-vine on the
back and they both help give the quilt a softer,
 more feminine look that I want for this friend.
I still have some left of each for that two-tone...
some day.  ;o)

Anybody else wrapping up 2019's last quilt?

Happy quilting!

Oh, a surprise quilt! What fun for her. I gave up on some of my Christmas gifts, since they were taking way too long (and causing lots of stress) so those will be finished for next year instead. I did finish the hand quilting on one quilt, for a special friend, and I got the binding stitched on by machine last night. Now to get it stitched down by hand before Christmas day.
