Coins


I've only made 1 coin quilt but I really enjoyed making it so I've started collecting some brights and kiddie prints so I could make a few more. I wasn't in the mood to sit at the sewing machine tonight after dinner so I pulled out some of the fabrics, pressed them and started cutting.
It is absolutely amazing how many 2.5 X 5.5 inch coins you can get from a few fat quarters!!!
I have some dots, stripes, Laurel Burch animals, balloons, dogs, cats etc. and what is absolutely even more amazing is that I barely made a dent in the basket of fabrics that I've been collecting!!

I remember your coin quilt and how much you liked doing it. I'll look forward to seeing another!
