Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and condolences on for our sweet little Beanie. She is missed very much.
Back in April, Quilt Magazine contacted me and asked if I would design a traditional coin quilt for their specialty publication Simple Quilts and Sewing. Of course, I said yes. The fabrics I was to use are fall like colors from Wilmington Prints.
Do you remember this blog post? Those strips were the ones for this quilt.
Here is a peek at the quilt. I chose to do fall like quilting too! Leaves all over the entire surface.
I really love the look of the quilting on this one. The thread used was to match the background fabric.
Then from the leftover strips, a pieced binding was made and applied. I think it really frames up the quilt.
Here is the quilt out on my lawn. Great little lap size.
Here it is in the magazine!! Great photo!
Yup... there I am too! This was a quick and easy project to make and would make a great gift. You can make it too!
Simple Quilts hit the newsstands on 9/27! So they are available. I don't have it yet in the shop, but as soon as they come in, I will let you know.
By the way, what a wonderful showing of 1st month's blocks for the Blogger BOM!! Go take a look at the Flickr group to see the combos of fabrics that everyone is choosing. Fantastic!
Also, I made a link list on my right sidebar which will be a permanent list for you to the specific tutorials for the BOM. This way you don't have to search if you forget on the 25th of the month! Thank you, Krista for the idea!
