    I started this quilt before Christmas but got derailled when my youngest wanted two quilts made for Christmas gifts. Now I'm back to it. It is for my oldest. She loves coffee so I am making her a coffee quilt. When I started it she was sleeping on a king size bed so that's how big I made it. After Christmas she got a new bed.....full size. This quilt is going to be a little big for her bed but she's OK with it. It's all coffee beans and coffee cups. I got a lot of the fabric from Ebay. I think they have everything.

    great - love the fabric and your pattern - I always like my quilts to be big, so can use them like a spread ;-)

    I think she'll love it.
    I wouldn't worry about it being too big.
    I have a queen size bed and always buy comforters for king size to fit it. I like the length that hangs over the edge.
    Oh, where are the quilts for my bed? Hmmm......haven't gotten to making myself one as of yet, I always give them alway

    Love it! I like the way you used the bigger blocks to showcase the cool coffee fabric. I made my oldest DD an apron with coffee themed fabric too!
