another coin quilt

This one is a special order through my etsy shop. I just love coin quilts.


Lots of white, and lots of scraps...
i really like the backing...

My only goal for this year is to finish all my quilts that are currently 'in progress' before I start any new ones (unless it's a custom order or for a new baby). I am currently working on this one.

I just rememered another goal...I really need to use my stash. Lately there has been too much coming in (fabric) and too little going out (quilts).

  2. That is a wonderful quilt! I love the backing. That is a great goal, too. Does "finish" mean quilted and bound? Because that's where I get into trouble.

  3. I could not possibly decide which side to use as the front. I'd use both sides alternating.

  10. I love your colour sense when you put your quilts together. Those corn quilts are a favorite of mine.
    I wish I had you colour spirit.

  11. Looks great - do you have dimensions/instructions somewhere on making a coin quilt like this? I'm looking for ideas currently for a quilt for my almost 3 year old and thinking a "baby" quilt is a bit past due, so maybe more of a lap quilt size....I like the coin quilts, just can't find directions and dimensions so far anywhere. I REALLY like your backing fabric also!

  15. Love this one! I especially love the binding and backing fabrics. Great way to use your scraps. I have a few coins cut for my coin quilt but I need to cut a lot more.

  17. I love a coin quilt also. I always feel a little extra pressure to quilt the white space with something spectacular though. Yours is beautiful.

  18. I LOVE the backing. I have been pretty conservative with backings normally making them solids, but this year I am making an effort to go outside the square and use a brighter patterned back or piece it. I bet the person who ordered this is going to flip!

  19. Emily, The backing fabric is from Hobby Lobby, I can't remember who makes it, but it wasn't one of the regulars.

    CAB, this quilt measures approx. 42in x 52in. Each "coin" was 4.5x3in cut (I might do them a little wider next time). The white fabric measures 2.5in cut. For this quilt I cut out my coins (77 total), then cut out white coins the same size. Sew them together into alternating white, color, white color strips--7 strips total. 11 color coins and 11 white coins in each strip. Sew 2.5in white strips between the 7 strips. Add border (mine are 2.5 inches, but you can do what you like).
    I hope that helps, good luck with your quilt. Let me know if you have questions. nettiepete at gmail dot com.

  32. Nettie, I did some searching and I found a print called "Mod Dot" by Alexander Henry that is pretty close to your backing. Thanks for all your beautiful projects!

  39. Awesome quilt- thanks for inspring me to make a baby quilt similar to this design. I quilted through an entire night and finished the top & bottom. Today I found 3 yards of this same backing fabric at Hobby Lobby and snatched it up for another project. It is by Brother Sister Design Studio-B24-HAO!-P15 for anyone else trying to track it down. :) Thank you.
