.inspired by the coin.

I need an "on-the-go" hand-sewing project that I can have ready for when I feel like having a sit on the couch and do some quiet stitching. I haven't had anything in progress for awhile, but knew exactly what I wanted to do.

Remember the kids beds? I put together some fabric to make them a quilt each back when we painted the beds. The plan is to have white sheets and doona covers, then "decorating" the beds with a fun quilt.

Lately, I have been really inspired by quilts which feature a lot of white, especially Coin Quilts. Here are some favourites from flickr:

Here is the start...I've pieced all of the "coins" and hopefully tonight will get to sew in the white sashing between the strips. I'll do all of the piecing for the front by machine, then spend some slow, sewing time hand-quilting on the couch. Perfect activity for cold, winter evenings...

Fantastic! Beds look great too. I'm loving the coin quilts myself at the moment. Love white with brights.
