baby coins

A baby was born right before Christmas!
Of course, I knew the baby was coming....
but I had not given any thought to the quilt I
knew I'd be making until
yesterday!
This quilt came together so easily!
First I cut some 3" strips.
sewed some together.
Then I started cutting those into 10" pieces.
There are 10 of the those 10" "coins" in each row.
When all three rows were done, I thought it needed something else.
I rummaged around in my bag of 3" squares.
Yeah! I found some to match in a scrappy kind of way.:)
White sashing.
Pinned and ready!

  1. Oh, you've inspired me to finish my baby coins quilt. I ran out of the white sashing fabric, bought some, but have never gotten around to finishing it. Coin quilts are so simple, but look so nice. I like your small square strips in there. Nice touch!
