Scraps of binding, a practice piece from when I was first learning free motion quilting, and a conveniently cylindrical coffee pot all add up to a very quick project for a dull afternoon.
While on a visit this week I spotted a coffee pot just like this one with its own wrap-around cosy, and knew I just had to make one, especially as I had all the components already prepared and stashed away waiting for the right project. We have two of these coffee pots, a small one and a large one. I am not a coffee drinker, but my husband uses the smaller pot every day to make himself a solo cup. I said I was going to make a cosy, and the conversation went something like this:-
"To keep your coffee hot."
"But I want it to cool down."
"I want to make one."
"To use up the bits and pieces."
"It's not worth the effort."
"Yes it is."
Etc. etc. etc. I suppose I should have realised he wouldn't totally see the point, because I am the one who insists on hot tea, scalding soup, hot dinner plates, and can finish a meal while he is still waiting for his to cool down. Anyway, we came to an agreement. I shall make one for the larger pot so we can keep coffee warm when we have visitors.
I am looking forward to a super quick finish!
