ava coin quilt

i have it all finished!!! yeah!! i did the binding last night just in time for my sister in laws shower that is tomorrow.

this was inspired by netties colorful coin quilt that was in my sister in laws etsy favorites. hope she likes it as much!

the quilts finished size is approx. 42X52 with the coins being 2X3 finished. i used a charm pack i had gotten from quilt taffy by cutting off an inch and a half from the width and then cutting it in half (the charms were 5x5) and then added to it from my stash for quite the variety of fabrics! i love that there are so many different fabrics in this one!



now i need to finish the decorations! better get back to sewing! see you next week! :)

    I assume you made the quilt shown in your header picture as well? I didn't see it in any of the posts so far...
