Remember This?

Remember my X-Rated quilt? I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for borders. Well I decided to go plain and put some nice hand quilting on them.

So I had the piano key strips left. What to do? Make a strippy coin quilt of course!

Great solution to your X-rated quilt! And that strippy coin turned out super cute ;o)

The coin quilt sings to me. A simple design yet I have never made one. I like the colors of this one.

Amy said...

You clever quilter, you! Both make me smile.

Barb said...

two great pieces. What fun scrap quilts. Hand quilting? always the right answer :)

Lori said...

You are so creative!! I love both of them and I think the plain border on the top one really looks good. Sometimes that is all a quilt needs.

Seriously....I need to make some coin quilts with all these tidbits I have here. Your's is a delight and your X-Rated will be wonderful with your handquilting! I can see it now! LOL

Very cool! A two-for! They are both darling. Enjoy your hand stitching, Dawn!

Great choice and a bonus quilt in the deal, what's not to love about that?

Linda said...

Genius! I love how they turned out. Colors are beautiful.

Too funny! I did the same thing with my X-Rated quilt. Made the piano key border and decided it was just too busy. Ended up with a two-fer set of quilts too! Your coins look great (as does your X-Rated!).

Karen said...

Perfect as usual! Can't wait to see the quiting on the x quilt. My poor rendition is still hanging on the design wall. Not that I want to wish my life away, but I'm looking forward to 2011 and getting more things done!

Oh, hand quilting will be even prettier than it is now. The coin quilt top is just great, too - my favorite color combo.

Janet said...

They're both great and what's better than two for one?

Rose said...

I like both of these, but expecially that top one!
