I haven't made any quilts now for a while, and it's a skill I miss using. Quilts are lovely, comforting, practical things, and a great way of showcasing some of the fantastic fabrics that are out there.
My friend over at Three Dancing Magpies has recently become obsessed with everything quilted, a very lovely crafty lady who taught me how to knit, and is already a really good quilter! In one of her recent blog posts, here, she mentioned making coin quilts, a term I wasn't familiar with. A coin quilt is an extremely pretty patchwork quilt top, that is wonderful for showing off great fabrics, even those with large prints, so you can use all those fabrics that you weren't sure what you could do with, but loved enough to buy a half yard of!
I was browsing through the pages of Etsy today and stumbled upon the lovely shop of KnitKnat, and her quilts are wonderful, one of which is a coin quilt, I have to make one of these for myself! For those of you who don't quilt, or don't want to wait, her quilts are lovely and very affordable. The top one also incorporates a favorite of mine, natural linen, isn't it lovely? I normally do a treasury of a few different Etsians, but Knit Knat was definitely worthy of one all by herself! Happy Thursday!
