My Entry into the Fall Quilt Festival

Have you seen all the gorgeous quilts at the Blogger’s Quilt Festival? Amazing work being displayed out there!

I was torn between two of my recent favorite quilt projects, but ultimately I decided to enter this one into the festival. I made it as part of the coin quilt piece-along earlier this year. I was a little intimidated to machine quilt it myself, so it took me until July to finally finish it.

finished coin quiltI planned to use a pattern, but as is typical for me, I cut the coins the wrong size. So I ended up making my own pattern to finish this one, and it turned out just fine. Sometimes I just not good at following directions or staying within the lines! The finished quilt measures 48-inches x 67-inches.

I haven’t machine quilted very many of my own quilts, so for this one, I wanted to keep it simple with lines in the white sashing. I added a patchwork binding with the scraps.

I was so humbled when Jennifer actually noticed my quilt and gave it a shout out.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my favorite quilt. By the way, my etsy shop is also a sponsor in the festival so be sure to sign up to win some of the great giveaways being offered.
