Repro strippy coin Quilt

I found a perfect border fabric (or should I say borders) while on retreat last week! So this week I got the borders on! Doesn't it look great! Now to get it quilted! I think I"m going to do this one by hand also - in what else - fans!

I love the border fabric... There's lots of handquiting going on...I've really been in the mood for it...

Yes - it DOES look great - the border fabrics are PERFECT! And fans is a great way to finish it off. Are you going to big stitch the fans? I think I would, with all those seams to stitch through.
