Chinese Coin Quilts

I finished the top to the coin quilt I have been working on. I must say I rather like the colors of it. I just need to get some backing fabric and then I can attempt to free motion quilt it. I used a balipop in the sherbert colors.


I took the picture while it was draped over my desk so it is really not distorted like it looks.

Crazy month!

Goodness it has been a while since I have posted anything. It has been a crazy busy month. I started on a quilt using BaliPops. I am making a coins quilt. I love the way it is turning out so far (photos to follow). However, I found that I had to recut all of the balipops 2.5 inch strips. They ALL had a pregnant belly in the middle and were off. Anyone else find this to be the case? I bought 3 packs of these and would hate to have to cut all of them to size.

Other then that, I love the colors and the quilt is turning out nicely. I am going to try a pattern I found with applique ladybugs on it. Really cute wall hanging that would look nice in my dining area.

More later
