Gosh...I've had a pretty productive week but have not been sharing on the blog.
Here we go!
I finished the binding on this Stacked Novelty Coins. I'm not really liking it but am thinking a trip through the wash will crinkle it up more and then, poof! It will be better. :)
this quilt and this quilt.

When I found the pile of fabric for the back of the above quilt, I found the inner portion of this quilt. I simply added two borders to bring it to approximately 50 x 60. I really like it so I may gift it to my niece who is expecting her first baby in August. Funny side story about this quilt. I was making it for a casual friend who was expecting last summer. I was really concerned as I wasn't sure of his religious affiliation, Noah's Ark and all. Turns out that he is Jewish and they had twins! A boy and a girl so this flimsy got buried on the work table. See the twin quilts: Mallory's here and William's here.
Since I wasn't too excited about the Stacked Novelty Coins, I thought I would try an off-set version. I was so proud of my self for keeping track of which side to sew the spacer on then after I added the sashings, I had a *I COULDA HAD A V-8 MOMENT*! complete with slapping my head!
See it?! Novelty-background-novelty-and on until the half background. geesh! so much easier, less fabric and less seams.
note to self:
try not to over complicate life
6.5 x 6.5, 5.5 x 6.5, ... , 3.5 x 6.5 (first row then reverse order for second row)
Pattern source: unsure - perhaps public domain?
Dazzle from Lorien Quilting and it's ready to have the binding tacked down.
Whew! Hope you made it to the end cuz there is lots to read!
