Strippy Coin Quilt continues

Here is the center of my strippy coin quilt! I had fabric all picked out for the border, but now I"m second guessing myself! I'm going to have to lay a few out I think and see. And below is the mini quilt I made from all the trimming scraps from the columns in the big one! This one is 6" x 6"!

I love these little blocks - you soooo could do a crumb quilt like Bonnie and I were playing with. These little guys would be perfect, as would some of your liberated log cabins. Big coin quilt looks marvelous too - I'm looking forward to seeing it with the border!

Hi Dawn, love the Chinese coins top..it's really great! And how nice to have strips from a friend to work with..*VBS* I really like that part!!
You've been so busy as usual! Love the accessories for the Featherweight, and the nephew quilt looks great too. Hugs, Finn

Love both of those coin quilts. I can see myself doing the larger one but the other - well lets just say at some point I have to let myself toss small scraps and this looks to be made up of ones much smaller than I ever plan to work with. LOL!

Wow, looks great! And I love the orange sashing. :)

I'd be tempted to set that mini quilt on point, like a square in a square design, with more strippy little bits... and make it pillow size, it's cute.

Oh, I love this coins quilt Dawn! Waaaah! I want to play with my strings! I HAVE to finish the baby quilt first, however. Love that fabric you've chosen for the strips and the border!

The mini quilt is cuter than button. I think the orange would be a bit bright for the big quilt Though.

Ooo! I love the orange sashing on the mini. What a great way to use up your trimmings!

The big coins are beautiful. Can't wait to see what they look like when you're finished.

Dawn it looks like you've been having lots of fun with these strips!

What about navy or even black for the border?
