I finished this quilt top back in August of 2013. You can click this link to go back & read more about how I made this quilt, if you are so inclined. I had originally named this quilt the "Accidental Quilt" since I hadn't really planned on making it, but now that it is finished, I have decided to name it "Christmas Coins".
This quilt top was sent to Abby Latimer for long-arm quilting. We decided on the Christmas Snow pattern, which I think turned out really great on this quilt. The only thing I wish I had done differently is used a different backing fabric. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time on the backing, so I used a wide back that I found at my LQS. I like the backing fabric, but the quilting really gets lost on the busy fabric. I love when quilting stands out on the back of a quilt, so going forward I will try to choose fabrics that will allow the quilting to shine!
I decided to go with the same grey fabric for the binding as I used for the background so the coins could appear to float on the background fabric.
