Featherweight Fun & Strippy Coins

I've only been wanting to make a pouch and cover for my featherweight table arm now for ages. Well since September when I saw Judy at Quilting with Ragdolls (see Sept 17th & 18th) make them. She got her featherweight about the same time I did so of course it stuck in my brain! So last night I got mine made! Wooo Hoo!!!!


And then I finally started my string coin quilt I've been wanting to make. A friend of mine has made a bunch of them and she sent me her leftover strips! So last night I got a good start! I think I"m going to make 5 rows and then I have this awesome fabric for the border - I won't tell, I have to leave something for you to look forward too! Below are Kathie's wonderful inspirations for this quilt!

I got my tub o scraps out yesterday and a have a big bag of strips that are screaming at me, "make a coin quilt".

Your coin quilt is off to a great start.

Your pouch and cover are so cool.

I'm sitting here laughing because you are one of the reasons I became a blogger, I "found" your blog and being a big old gabster I just had to comment-hence a blog! Now my quilting is so enhanced by the blogging experience but pretty much everytime I log in my list of quilts to make and ideas to try gets added to, as it has been today when I've looked at your new projects!! Thanks, I think, for all the motivation! Must go and Google that farming game to see if it is locatable here. Now that is an internet idea my husband will love! Tracey

It's looking great of course. Why is it called a coin quilt?
