Coin Stacks

When I joined the Sliced Coins Quilt Along I didn't really expect to fall in love with this simple pattern. I thought it would be a fun quick little quilt. Well, it is a fun quick quilt but it's turned into so much more. Originally I ordered fabric for it, but couldn't wait for it to arrive, so I headed to the local shop and bought something else. Since I was already a week behind everyone else, I spent a couple of house after work one day cutting and sewing. Today when everyone began linking their progress, I got antsy. I couldn't be left out of the linky fun! So I sat down to my new little machine and spent an hour sewing up the coins. That's it, an hour. Oh how I love this pattern! So quick! So easy! No angles! No set-in seams! No bias! I think I'm in love.....

The colours are not nearly as washed out as they look in this photo. The quilt feels to me like beach glass. I promise to stop taking pictures with my phone, just as soon as I find all the parts for my camera.....
