This coin quilt has been a long time coming. But I like my quilts like that...slow and steady!
When we painted the kids beds I wanted to make matching quilts for them so that their bedroom looks a bit more coordinated than it does now.
I have finished the fronts and backs of both of them, and here is Oscar's all quilted and bound and ready to keep him snug all winter long.
I did all of the quilting by hand (I really need to learn to machine quilt but I do love me a bit of hand quilting!). Decided to contrast all of the rectangles and sharp edges and randomly quilt lots of different sized circles. It took forever but I love how it turned out. I don't use a hoop when I hand quilt...it means that my back ends up all puckery but makes quilting much more comfortable. I kinda like the crinkled look though!!
Now I've got to get Lil's quilt out and basted ready for snuggling on the couch for some winter hand quilting...if she's lucky it will be ready by next winter ;)
