We don’t have many quilts on our walls at home (it’s cluttered enough already with fabrics and projects I guess), but there are a few adorning the pine walls of our cabin, like this Chinese coins quilt from 2001.
I pieced all the strips together in one direction which made the bars a bit askew. I could have straightened them, but I liked the little leaning towers. I tried quilting the bars in a paisley-ish pattern that I used to doodle back in school.
The scraps and the blue border and sashing are thrifted fabrics so there are not many quilting fabrics in the quilt, maybe 4-5. It’s strange; I remember each and every one of these fabrics and where I got them, but now I find fabric in my stash I swear I have never seen before. What can I say; hi, my name is Nina Lise and I’m a hoarder. Not fabric hoarder; just plain big old hoarder.
I used the quilt as a sample for a scrap workshop a few years ago and husband put it back on the wall. Looking at the pictures I see that the top of the quilt is a bit twisted so it doesn’t hang straight. I’ll have to fix it on our next visit ‘cause now it’s bugging me.
