A Small challenge quilt

I am participating in a Coin Quilt challenge. The only criteria was "make a coin quilt". No size or pattern specifications - whatever you envision a coin quilt to be.

These are the fabrics I gathered together. I decided to make a traditional coin quilt.
And I knew I wanted to make it small. (no surprise there)

The center looked a bit plain to me so I decided to fussy cut and mitre the floral & stripe Jo Morton fabric to create an interesting border. I also decided to hand quilt it to keep with the reproduction feel of the quilt. This little quilt finished at 16" x 18".

I turned the finished quilt in on Saturday. I'll be sure to share pictures of all the finished quilts in this challenge (including mine) once they are on display.

every quilt tells a story....

  7. I keep thinking that I want to make a coin quilt but have not done anything towards starting one. I like the simplicity of the rows and you can use lots of small pieces of fabric.
