Quilt tops…

Hi all,

I hadn’t wanted to post about these until I gave them to Christine, but here goes…..

Christine gave me some fabric, shop samples I think, it is a gorgeous girly range. With the instruction to make a couple of tops.

I was going for a Stacked Coin quilt. They are BIG coins, about 11”x4”! I didn’t put a white border around the edge because I think they are plenty big enough, maybe white binding will finish them off nicely.

There sure are a lot of polka dots in this range, I had to be careful not to get a heap of dots in the one area. But I think they turned out okay.

Tomorrow they are heading back to Christine to be quilted and given to people affected by the floods for Quilts for Queensland

I couldn’t be expected to sit on these lovelies for any longer could I?! They needed to be shared! LOL

Of course they should! They turned out beautiful; such lovely fabric and colours and I'm sure they'll bring so much joy and comfort to someone affected by the floods.

I think you're right about the white binding finishing this off nicely. Looking forward to seeing the final result.
Those fabrics are gorgeous. Do you know what they are? They look like Tanya Whelan/Tilda/Annette Tatum...maybe even Aviary or Flower Sugar. Ok I'll stop guessing cos I'm probably way off. :)
