Christmas Coffee Wall Quilt
Welcome to our Christmas Coffee Wall Quilt tutorial, where we'll guide you through creating a festive masterpiece. This small wall quilt showcases a beautifully embroidered cup of coffee surrounded by a burst of poinsettias, framed with white and red fabric and meticulously quilted for added charm.

The central and eye catching part of the quilt is a stitch-out of the Christmas Coffee design.

The finished size of the quilt is about 15" x 19 1/2".
