Coin Quilt

This baby coin quilt is my first finish of 2014 and most likely my oldest UFO. It is probably 5-6 years old? Not very old for some quilters but I haven't been quilting for very long either.



When I first saw a coin quilt I fell in love with them. A great way to showcase each fabric without having to have yard pieces. I've also found out they are a great way to use up some scraps too. I did a little straight line quilting and then decided to free motion some flowers into the white spaces. It has been a few months since I did any free motion quilting and I sure did feel a bit rusty. I love the way a quilt gets all wrinkly after a run through the washer and dryer.



We had a very windy and cold day here again. The wind was very helpful in showing the back of the quilt. It's a nice blue fabric with little houses all over it.
