Coins In Progress

Are you participating in the 2009 coin quilt piece-along?  I have been enjoying seeing all the finished coin quilts as well as the process others are making toward finishing their versions.

I wasn’t sure if I would have time to participate, but I really wanted to.  I often have too many irons in the fire and then have an anxiety attack when I realize I don’t have enough time to finish everything, which takes the fun out of it!  I know, I need to relax and slow down!

I decided to quit worrying and just go for it, so cut up my coins on Friday night.

Coins cut up so far

I am using the coin quilt pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.  I cut ten fat quarters into 5″ strips, and then into 3.5″ coins.  Easy peasy.  Then I laid them into five rows of 22 coins.

I am using fabrics from the Bell Bottoms collection by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom, which make me think of the beach because of the bright, tropical colors.  I love each and every one of the Sis Boom fabric designs (especially the new Flower Power collection), and just discovered Jennifer has a shop where you can order finished goods too!  I have been savoring these fabrics for a long time, and now I’m happy I saved them for just the right project.

I finished my next project for my design class, so I will be sewing all day on Sunday – yippee!  Stay tuned for the quilt progress…

  1. I say this challenge and stayed away this time. I did sign onto the scrap challenge. I already had some stars from the Bushfire Quilting.

    I did a coin quilt last year:
    Colorway Quilt

    Does that count?

  2. I love coin quilts! The next quilt I make will be one of those. These days my time seems to be so limited so that is on the back burner for now.

    Best wishes with yours!

  3. Yummy. I love Bellbottoms! I am doing my coin quilt in Flea Market Fancy. Although I haven’t actually started cutting it yet. I just have the fabric piled up.

    I love Jennifer’s new Flower Power line but can’t find any fat quarter bundles anywhere but Etsy. I can’t buy from Etsy because my credit card no longer works on there. It’s so frustrating. 😦

  4. Terri, I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful comments they make me so happy! I love that you love the colors cause they make me happy too!!! All my best, Jennifer
