WIP Wednesday - Modern Coin Quilt

On Saturday I was in the mood to sew. You know just had to make something! So what's a girl to do? I pulled out all of my precuts to take a look at what I could make. Here's what I dug out:

My stack of precuts and other pretties.

So using what I already had, I decided to make coin quilt similar to this one. However, I did not have quite as many pieces to work with. In fact I had 30 blocks at 6"x6" and nothing in my stash to make more squares up. These fabrics are definitely outside the norm of what I purchase but I got them last summer (!) at a good deal.

Sewing it up....

So I cut all of my blocks in half so I was left with 60 3"x6" rectangles.

I then laid them out in a happy pattern and sewed them together to create 6 strips of 15 rectangles. I then added sashing to make approximately 36" by 75" quilt top.

I'm loving how it all works  together. I plan to add two borders. One small probably 1" to 2" and the other a bit chunkier at 3" to 4". I think orange and yellow would work well. But I'll have to see what I can get my hands on!

Here's a close up of the colors:

Can't wait to add on those borders!

I'm linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts and Freshly Pieced Modern Quilts. Go check them out! They are fabulous!

What pretties do you have in the works?
