Started on my 2010 Coffee Quilt-A-Long

Yep. I did it. I cut into the coffee fabric that I've been hoarding for quite a few years.

There's this Flikr group, 2010 Tea/Coffee Quilt - A - Long that I joined because I needed to do something with the 10+ yards of coffee themed fabric that I've had for a minimum of 4 years and just keep adding to. I'm totally addicted to coffee, so I figured that this would give me a chance to actually make a quilt for me. I've only kept 1 large quilt out of all the tons I've made for me. I've only kept 2 mini quilts for myself too - so I figure I deserve one.

These are my blocks so far:
Churn Dash


Square in a Square

Bar None - designed by Diane Harris, found in the 100 Quilt Blocks Magazine


And this one that I hate:

I'll probably put that one on the back, just because it has my favorite fabric on it.

I know I'm only supposed to get 1 block a month done, but I'd like to have 24 blocks done by June, then quilt this baby up by September.


  1. Hi Jenn,
    There some beautifull fabrics you got. And some nice bloks, is the first one with linen?

  2. Hi!

    The first is actually made with a light brown speckled cotton fabric. It does look like linen in the photo, but it's 100% cotton quilting fabric.

    It's actually the light brown version of the grey in the Woodland Quilt fabrics for Bean - you can see that in this post

  3. Your coffee blocks are really pretty.
