I can't resist them so when I came across a pattern that looked like it would use up quite a few (see Vicki's here) I knew I wanted to give it a go.
So 5" strips and some four patches later, joined by some 5" half square triangles and it began to take shape:
And once you get going its a little hard to stop. I thought I'd keep this going until it was close to a bed size. And today I managed to add the borders on so its a finished flimsy.
The joy comes from also seeing fabric that has been used in many projects before, that have now found homes. Just keeping a small piece that gets to be included in something like this brings a smile to my face.
And it seems that with coin strips, it doesn't really matter what goes next to what, with a neutral background to give the eye a place to rest, all is well.
With all that colour going on though, I think a simple stipple may be what is required quilting wise. So we'll see how soon I can get some backing chosen and this quilt sandwiched together.
Have a happy weekend, this one is a nice way to begin mine.
Until next time,
