I am a member of Bakersdozen, a yahoo-group in which we make 13"x13" quilts based on a theme. One of the themes is caffeine. For this quilt I dyed the background fabric with instant-coffee. The quote is from Josephine Baker: "He was my cream and I was his coffee. And when you poured us together it was something".
When I found this quote I knew I wanted to do something with it. After some searching I found a picture of a dancing couple and knew that it would fit. For the lady I printed coffee beans on a sheet of fabric, for the man I used one of my white fabrics. The quote was quilted with a variagated thread, for the background I used a blending thread.
