Something Finished




I have a finished flimsy!!! Is that the proper way to describe it? The top is pieced...have no idea when it will go to the quilter. I have a great feeling of accomplishment. This is my version of the Chinese Coins that I have seen on other blogs. I am calling it my version because I am not sure that it is exactly like everyone else's. The funny thing is how much I like it. I have said all along that I was doing this for the experience but these fabrics were not to my taste. They were a gift and I was using my stash. All this fabric I have had at least 4 years. However, now that it is done, I think that it is pretty. It will be interesting to see how I feel when I eventually send it out for quilting.
I wish that I knew how to place pictures on the blog. It is difficult to take out the camera and not take a picture of my baby, Bea. I added it second and it loads to the top. Not that she is not always on the top of my list but need to learn more on blogging. She is the sweetest thing. She is so tiny that I worry about her. I try to feed her up but she is not real interested in food.
Hope everyone is doing well and getting lots accomplished!!!

Your quilt looks wonderful and so does Bea! The colors on the quilt look very vibrant. I'm not familiar with Chinese Coins, are the strips actually pieced parts or are they applique on top?

When you upload your pics, they automatically go on top, you can click on them and drag them down to where ever you want to place them. I had to figure that out after wondering why all the pictures I was uploading weren't appearing on my blog and then finding them all at the top, LOL!
Your Chinese coins quilt is beautiful and your kitty is adorable!

Thanks for visiting my blog and you congratulations comment. Your "flimsy" (yes, that is the proper word) looks great! Finishing off a top is such a great feeling. I cannot wait to get back to my quilting once we've recovered from our weddings.

I like the Coins top too. I've been working on several version using coins collected from HeartStrings quilters in April and May.
