Coke Cola Quilt
Happy Fathers Day to my best dad ever! For Father's Day I made my dad a pixel quilt with one of his favorite drink. When I was younger our laundry room was filled from top to bottom, and every nook and cranny with Coke Cola products.
So one day I was just browsing one of my quilt stores and came across Coke Cola fabrics. This brought me so many memories as a child when my mom would be quilting and me helping her cut her chained pieces, ironing fabric, and basically just having fun! This was when I thought I needed to make a Coke Cola quilt. Now at the time I was trying to come up with different ideas on what to do....
Remember the old 1970's Coke Cola song "I'd like to buy the world a coke!" Yeah that song was in my head the whole time while I was making it and I am a 90's baby! =P
Within a few days, I pieced it together and took it to my Quilting Store for me to quilt it. I really wanted to quilt the Coke Cola script writing on it but sadly they didn't have the program to customized it. I could hand draw coke cola but my cursive handwriting isn't that pretty. Lol So we went with a "C" swirl.
I went with a larger swirl that is 12" tall so that it wouldn't distract from the quilt.
Quilting was done on a APQS Millie! One of my dream machines. I really wish I could own one myself in my home.
