Chinese Coin Quilt


IMG_2397, originally uploaded by toniann.

After wreslting with this for a week or two……ok for not doing anything with the formed coined strips for a week or two, I finally got to grips with quilting and binding it.
I chose not to stitch in the ditch as I wanted some contrast, so chose a diamond grid instead.
I haven’t seen any tutorials on how to mark quilts, but had managed to get a silver Quilters Dream pencil and used that. I should not have basted the top to the wadding and back as it was a total bitch to mark (note for future – mark quilt before basting). The pencil was good, but having to draw lines on a soft surface coupled with having to do it on the carpet does not make for a tidy sharp process.
Anyhoo – got it done, everyone likes it. Cannot wait to start the next one!

    Wow that looks amazing! I am impressed you have gotten multiple projects done too. I have yet to finish anything quilt wise 😦 Nearly done with Charlie’s advent pillow, I am SO bored of it now and just want to do something else but know that if I don’t finish it now I will be panicking next christmas to get it done!

    Just got my Janelle Wind block 1 a few minutes ago so will probably have to start that today. Would love to keep up with the 7 month project and give Noemie a quilt to sleep under 🙂
