UFO finished


Yesterday was a lazy day but I did manage to make this binding, get it sewn on and even hand stitched down.

I'm very happy with the quilting now that it's completely finished! This is one of my favorites of the HeartStrings Chinese Coins quilts I've made and the instructions can be found on my MaryQuilts.com site.

I really like this Chinese Coins quilt, too -- I think the dark sashing really makes it pop. The quilting on the sashing is perfect for this!

Wow Mary, the top is really nice, but your quilting is just wonderful! I can only wish to quilt so nicely. Just beautiful.

I really like the way the strips of coins are different widths. I think I'll have to make one of those soon.

I agree...this is a beautiful quilt. Nice job!

Very pretty.

Darcie said...

Lazy day? For you?! I may have to debate that. ;-)

Most Chinese Coin quilts that I've seen have the same width of stringed (strung?) strips. But I think it's your variance in width that really intrigues me. Very well done, Mary! I especially LOVE the quilting!

Great job! Though I didn't expect anything else from our favorite quilter. I love the Chinese coins, and the black and various size widths really makes an interesting quilt. I love the various ways you quilted the strips, too.

I'm so glad you are happy with your quilting. It looks really nice. You are really zooming with your quilting the last several months. I wouldn't beat yourself up IF (big if) you don't get all ten done. You deserve some Mary time.

Those swirls look great Mary and they are the perfect choice for that quilt.

Julie in the Barn said...

Just wonderful! Thanks so much for the instructions, Mary. I have to make one of these soon. The swirls are perfect.

I love the look of the uneven coin strips. What a great idea. Thanks, will definately give that a try this year.

This is such a great quilt. I am tackling my scrap bag this year. This gives me some great inspiration.

Mary, funny you posted a coins top today - as I was cleaning out some of my sewing room today (still have lots to do in there) and I found some coins that I made ages ago for the special HS's project. Do you think the group will have another coins project anytime? If so I'll hold on to them until then.. however at the time I really thought I'd get a top done and donated to the group (days before the twins of course) LOL

Love that dark plum you used for the sashings... really fun! Have a Happy Weekend!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
