Coin Quilt Completed!

Another one down! I wasn't so sure about this one at several stages during it's production, but now that it's all washed and dried, I am smitten. You just can't beat a quilt with warm and natural batting and free motion quilting...okay, maybe a sweet little baby all snuggled up in that crinkly goodness. Aye! My ovaries!
This one reminds me so much of my grandmother. The mismatchiness of it reminds me of her need to use up everything she had around the house rather than buying fresh supplies. What impressive restraint that woman had!

It's beautiful...simple and simply beautiful.

You did a wonderful job and what a nice tribute to your grandmother.

I love the binding, sara - I think it works well with how bright the quilt is. You did an awesome job . .it makes me so happy to see several of the 5X5 pieces that I sent in there . . I think that was a fantastic idea. Speaking of 5X5 - I managed to get yours cut yesterday!
