Chinese Coin Mini Quilts

Kathy cut more than half the pieces for this Twist of Fate quilt...she got me the kit for my bday last year (and it is almost my bday this year!) and I haven't managed to do anything with it. So she cut it up and I labeled it and bagged it up for Fall Quilt Camp. I think this will be a good one to work on there if it is all pre cut. I really like how the blocks look like a puzzle fit.
My sister, my dad and his significant other, oh and Divot the dog. I am glad she got to see him before coming back to AZ. Soon it will be my turn. Have not heard any more news, though he had lots of tests today.

Tonight I played in my sewing strips and made three little quilt tops. They are of the Chinese Coin type and were done with pretty random strips around them. This one may turn out to be what I use for the next quilt auction donation for my guild.

This one with the pink strip will most likely be a doll quilt present for Kathy's niece Ayla. She just spent the night over here and I thought she would like this for her baby dolls.



And I decided to make a tiny one for me so that I can change out my A is for Adiminaby quilt now and then. They went together pretty quickly and I like the slight wonkiness of them. I will try to machine quilt them myself which should be entertaining, smile.

Look at all the coins! Were those pretty easy and quick to put together? They look great!

That twist of fate is cool! You made me want to make chinese coin quilts, but I need to finish so many other quilts first.

The Twist of Fate is really neat! Like the little Chinese coins quilts. I have enough fabric that I should do one of those. Another item to add to my "to do" list. Sorry to read about your dad's health problems. If it's okay with you, I will add him to my prayers. :-)
