The Coins Quilt is Ready to Ship!

The coins quilt is finished and ready to send off on its trip across the sea.  I am really pleased with how this one finished. It seems to me a "happy" quilt. I like quilts that make me smile, and this one does!

I used a splotchy blue fleece print for backing. The colors on this one are just so intense. The quilting is just free-hand swirls, but it's effective with all the straight lines.

I know I'm just weird sometimes, but I even like looking at the back side of the quilt top before I put it all together. I like seeing order come of all the chaos that goes into creating one like this.

Another look, just because I like it.

And also, just because I like it - this shot really made me laugh - all three black and tan dogs with their heads stuck through the bushes looking at something on the other side of the fence, probably a cat!

I did get a little sewing done on this one, too, last night. Half of the blocks have their sashings and cornerstones. Before you know it, this one will be a real quilt, too. 

Happy, happy. I picked the first ripe tomato from our garden last night. Always a very good thing!

I hope there is lots happy in your world, too!

Hugs and kisses,


  1. I was tickled to read that it's a "happy" quilt, because upon seeing the first photo "joyful!" popped in to my head. Love it!

  2. Makes me happy look at it, too. So many fun prints and bright colors. I love it!

  3. It sure is a happy quilt and turned out so beautiful. I love the other one too. That's the life of a dog, watching a cat's every move. To funny. Hugs, xo

  4. The border on your coins quilt just finishes it so nicely. It's definitely a happy quilt!

  5. The more I see that quilt, the more I love it! That blue is just so gorgeous!

    Your first tomato? Awesome! We are closely watching our one and only (so far) ... seems like it's taking forever!

    I laughed when I saw the picture of the back ends of the dogs.

  6. These photos are great.The blue in the quilt is lovely and I do like all those gorgeous colours in the coins. What a wonderful gift.
    Your dogs look like they are having a wonderful time together!!
    Tomatoes already! Wow.

  7. Hahaha -- it took me a minute or two to figure out what that picture is -- then I read your text -- dog butts! Toooo funny! And your quilt turned out great -- it looks really cozy with that backing too!

  8. Love your coins quilt. And that dog picture made me laugh too! LOL

  9. What a funny shot of the dogs! Lovely quilt.......who ever gets it will love it! My tomatoes are also getting ripe. We have been getting good rain! Love your pretty quilts!

  10. I love the Coins Quilt. The colors and pattern are awesome. I like the photo of the dogs. That's a cute shot. Awesome getting your first tomato out of the garden. The first is always the best.
    Have a great day.
