Coin Quilts

February 15, 2011

I finished off another binding this week. This is a simple coin quilt I put together last year with Mckenzie from Dena Designs. These fabrics are so feminine, and so beautiful … I still love them. And they are 10% off in the store right now.

The coins were cut as 3½” x 12½” rectangles and sewed together in 3 strips of 20. The sashing is 3″, and the borders 4″. Finished size is about 50″ x 68″, perfect for getting cozy in a chair to read or watch a movie. The size could easily be adjusted – change the size of the coins, or add more rows or columns. The possibilities are endless. You can see a lot more coin quilts in this Flickr pool.

Our little group is also making progress on the CHQ quilt along. There are 5 of us getting together for a couple of hours on Friday morning to work on our quilts.

This is a simple project, and the beginning quilters in our group are loving it. It’s fun to see the different color options coming together – we’ve got 1 pink, 1 orange, 2 brown and 1 grey between us.

I’ve got more binding to work on this week (2 quilts to go!!), as well as keeping up with the quilt along. I still have to quilt my City Scapes from last month, but am itching to work on something new. Let’s see how much sewing time I can fit in this week!
