I’ve actually made some progress on my Spare Change Wall Quilt! I have the top pieced and ready to assemble. I know it doesn’t seem like I’ve gotten far, but really I have!
I decided to do a sort of stacked coin layout, I really had a hard time matching the blocks that I received in a way that liked them. But I found that if I put the colors of a couple of blocks together, I felt better about it.
This has really been a simple project, but in some ways difficult for me. It’s actually been years since I did any quilting, and I have really been procrastinating about it. And the thing is, I am not a procrastinator by nature! I love quilts, and I keep on adding to my stash to make some! I have tons of books and ideas as well. Having to work with the fabrics I received, (not the black of course) has challenged me a great deal.
So I am hoping that I get this machine quilted this next weekend. At least that is the plan. I ordered a couple of new presser feet for my sewing machine, and as soon as they arrive, I will begin. I’m thinking of adding a multi-color binding, about 1/2 inch to the edge. What do you think?
