I am continuing to make coffee cup blocks with intentional fabric choices to represent the characters in the Gilmore Girls television series. Now, my crazy self is trying to finish this before the 4 new episodes premiere next month. I was only going to make blocks for Lorelai, Rory and Luke but have become obsessed and am making them for many, many characters! I invite you to join me! All you need is a copy of my Rise and Shine Coffee pattern! See Etsy, Craftsy or Pattern Shop links in side bar.
This is Lorelai’s block. She runs the Dragonfly Inn. She loves junk food and movies (popcorn) and can smell the first snowfall of the year and insists on waking Rory to celebrate it.
Jackson is up next! He is Sookie’s husband and a gardener who supplies the inn with produce. Sookie and Jackson always argue about the quality of produce (garden print in middle, seed print on top, garden text print for lid). The basket print was used because Jackson proposed to Sookie at the Bid a Basket Festival.
Lorelai and Rory’s quirky neighbor is Babette. She is a crazy cat lady, over decorates for Halloween, and decorated her bedroom like a tropical jungle.
Yes, it’s true, I am having way too much fun with these. I have made all of these blocks from my stash and now will take a break for a couple of days while you catch up and while my fabric order ships! I had to order some extra prints for some of the other characters as well as some sashing fabric. I will be back early next week with more!
Please share your blocks on Instagram using the hashtag #riseandshinecoffeepattern. I would love to see them!!
