Mini Coin Quilts

I spent a couple hours on Saturday practicing my free motion quilting again. (I hope you’re not sick of me practicing this – I can be compulsive.)

This is how I spent my Sunday – enjoying the beautiful outdoors while finishing my latest round of mini quilts.

I cut these charm squares from the Daisy Chain fabric collection, and had a pile of scraps that I made into these mini quilts before I even started the real quilt.

Here are the finished minis:

The one above is small enough to be used for a placemat or hot pad (measures 11″ x 13″), and the one below is big enough to be used for a table topper or a doll quilt (measures 23″ square).

I really love the colors of these fabrics because they remind me of sea glass, which I have only seen in magazines.

Seashell hunting is fun whenever we visit the ocean, so it would be fun to hunt for sea glass too. Where do you even find sea glass? Anyway, I am quite happy with how these projects turned out, so now I’m feeling another sewing project addiction developing!
