Coin Quilt Challenge

A challenge was presented to the staff and teachers over at Kelly Ann's quilt shop. Each member created their own interpretation of a coin quilt.
(details available in my previous post)

I am always fascinated to see how creative minds interpret a common concept. Here are some of the larger quilts that were made for the challenge:

Here are pictures of the smaller creations which include pillows as well as small and miniature quilts:

This is my finished mini quilt - but it's a secret - if you don't follow my blog...(grin)

Unfortunately, I can't announce the names of these quilters. (just yet) The quilts are displayed for customers to guess who made them. But I can certainly tell you which quilt was my favorite. It was a miniature quilt - and no... it isn't mine. ;) It's this amazing and darling 12" quilt:

I love the little hammock and the adorable buttons the quilter used to embellish her quilt.

This challenge will soon go out to shop customers. It will be a fun Summer challenge involving an exciting display, contest and ribbons. Have you ever made a coin quilt?

every quilt tells a story....
