Design Wall Tuesday 7.31.2018


I saw Alycia's blog about one of her QOVers had passed away and she was putting out a call for flag blocks.

So I made a few to send off to Alycia.

I also saved a few out to make a quilt for our guild. PatR has put out a request for RWB quilts that measure 40 x 50 for her retirement center veterans. I wished I had used six flags instead of four...

On my design wall:

My finished coin quilt, all ready to donated to guild. The coins and sashings are from the guild stash...using up what we have!  lol

I quilted it with a new panto: Fern Gully. A shout out and thanks to Susan from the FB Quilt of Valor Stars group fro suggesting this panto to me. I really like the movement on it!

Design Wall Monday 7.2.2018

I'm working on a Comfort Quilt. At out June meeting, Heather shared her ideas for coin quilts. I snagged a group of 5 inch plaids, Heather cut and I began to sew them together. I didn't have enough to form vertical rows so I made horizontal rows instead. The beige print is also from the Comfort Quilts stash...

pattern details: horizontal Chinese coins - public domain.

Also, here is a tutorial from Moda Bakeshop

I was going to sew the outer border with the leftover coins a darker brown but, somehow, I forgot! Good thing, this is a little longer so I will need the extra for backing. lol
