Nareda's Coin Quilt - Ready to sew

Not withstanding the fact that Melbourne had the hottest day (CBD was 46.4º C - and much hotter in the burbs where I live easily add a degree or two) since they began recording and keeping records. NOW fellow bloggers and readers ~ this could just be a normal spike in the weather pattern and not the end of the world... alas that is a story and yarn for other places and experts.


Bright and colourful of cause ~ masses of Liberty fabric... 26 different fabrics... hmmm might see about some more from the stash...
ALL of that aside I have managed to plan and draw the quilt in Illustrator to same size then cut out all the Coins and White backgrounds. There are even some nice scraps for the Hexagon Quilt that is now going to get bigger...



I have reserved 73 inches of the white for the rails and boarder. You can also see the pattern, which I have recorded the details of how much is required to make the top. To date there are 90 coloured pieces cut and 86 white pieces cut... in all I need 86/85 respectively. So there are a few extras.

In the supper sized world we live in this is for a single bed - but should have a finished size of 75x72 inches...

My single bed quilts are all around that size. I like to have them drape over the sides, and they're also a perfect size to wrap around yourself on the couch when watching tv.
It's going to look beautiful.

Knowing you simon it will not be very plain but only time will tell. But whatever you do it will be wonderful in the end as usual. Nereeda is a lucky lady.Also fellow bloggers those beautiful hexagons are just exquisite to see, It is going to have to be on display somewhere so all that are interested can see the finished product, seeing it on the blog just does not do it justice.
