Nareda's Coin Quilt - Ready to quilt

Have to say that I am surprised that this project has gone as quickly as it has – now I could understand it if I had the trusty sewing machine going and was zipping it together with that - alas I had a sewing disaster and decided that it was the machine - not the operator (we all know that is wrong) so I hand sewed this Quilt top. I started sewing this just over 2 weeks ago and have now completed the top and joined the backing as well.

The size is 72 inches x 76 inches.

In this photo it is only just 'blog' ready. was missing the boarders and a row - but I think you will get the picture of what it is - yes I am very pleased with the result.



So it is off to get the wadding and the binding fabric during the week... and back to Hexagons...

Yep - hand sewing was a joy.... after almost a year of hexagons (1200 so far), this was a walk in the park!!!

It looks great. I'd be sewing for a year if I was to handsew a whole wuilt.
