This is a stacked coins quilt I made a few years back, and it is one of my all time fav's in our home. Most of my quilts are made for us, or as gifts and occasionally I get to do a comission and earn some extra money while doing one of my favorite things! No...not eating cookies...QUILTING. It has bits and pieces of all my favorite fabrics (at the time...). One thing I learned from this experience...is that I need to be writing down what I'm doing when making projects. Usually I never use patterns, and just go for it after getting an idea. However when my I was comissioned this spring to make a duplicate, I realized it would have been nice to be able to refer back to exactly how it was done. Here's a snippet of the original:
Now here's the duplicate in process. My "helpers" had a good time with this one.
And the finished duplicate. Darn, why didn't I take a twinners picture of them hanging side by side? Oh well.
