I should be quilting this quilt....instead I decided to start my first coin quilt.
Using this tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew and 100% scraps I finished it all in about an hour. The only problem now is I've got to find a way to match the cream to something in the store since those were scrap pieces also....wasn't thinking that far ahead.
Another quilt I started as I continued to procrastinate was this.
Its a twist on the disappearing nine patch pattern. I used this tutorial. I am loving how easy it is.
Make a nine patch like this...
Place the post color in the center of each 9 patch, and the sashing is the white.
Find the center of the post/sashing blocks, and cut both vertically and horizontally.
Flip your blocks so they are all going the same direction and there you have it. A block quilt with sashing and posts. WHAT COULD BE EASIER????
I used 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain and LOVE IT! Kate Spain has done it again with another fun fun line!
Can't wait to get it done -- but I did get the Star Cakes quilt on the frames and I have started the quilting. I'm sure I'll need a break here and there so I'll stop to make another block. They take about 20 minutes is all. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll have a quilt quilted and all my blocks ready to sew together. I love a fun fast project!
