I Love Coffee quilt

I've decided that I have now made enough quilt blocks.  See what happens when a person doesn't plan ahead?  Not very much, I guess.  I took the blocks into my bedroom.  I turned my bed quilt over and laid the blocks on the back of it.  As you will notice, there are discrepancies(Oy, the lack of a spell check is making a struggle for my vocabulary) and errors in some of them--well really a lot of them.  I decided not to go ripping out stuff--I'm liberated!  I could go ahead and make some color-cordinated, interior decorator, corners-matching-up quilt out of a magazine.  Been there, done that, but it's not creative enough for me. I'm a Gwen Marston fan. I got the idea for this quilt out of her book "Liberated Quiltmaking II." I plan to make applique hearts on the quilt for the "love" word. And I have to trim these blocks into size and asemble them.  Right now I have my thinking hat on because I joined in the http://lazygallibamish2010.blogspot.com/
which is a challenge to make a liberated Amish style quilt.  However, I will be very very busy the next few weeks skiing down hill, figure skating with Johnnie Weir, in the bobsled, and curling granite rocks down the ice!  I love the winter Olympics.  Actually, I even looked into going to Vancouver, but the cost was excessive, so I'm home with my TV and DVD. On another topic, today Feb. 12 is my DH's birthday.  He wants smoked whitefish and chocolate ice cream, not eaten together, but in that order.

Oh Roz! I love coffee too! Our plunger broke in the move, guess what was one of the first things we purchased up here? LOL The quilt looks great. :)

I love them as they are. I'm glad to hear that you are not going to do any ripping out.

Fun quilt! Fun, fun, fun!

Re: spell check, have you checked to see which format you're using when you're composing your posts? If you're working under the HTML tab you might not have spell check but it's still there when I use the Compose option to write my posts. It's the fourth icon from the right across the top of the text window. (The HTML and Compose tabs are just at the top of the text window, right hand side.)

These turned out great! I like your idea of adding the hearts. Very clever!
