Quilt #3 Stacked Coins

Well, here it is finally finished. Quilt #3 The Stacked Coins Quilt.
I started machine quilting it on Friday afternoon at "Sewjourn" and by Friday evening had finished it completely. It was a good start to the weekend. I had planned to have it finished on Friday so that I could work on the Irish Flower Chain Quilt for the rest of the weekend.
I quilted it about 1cm inside the seam on the coins then stippled around them on the white.
The binding was even made entirely of scraps!
I must say it is really pretty and I love the fact that a lot of my favourite fabrics are in here.
A lot of the scraps were my last bits of these fabrics. :(
I didn't do any sewing yesterday - maybe I was all sewed out from the weekend!!! But I did have to finish this order for a lovely lady in the USA today.
Christmas Stockings already - this lady is organised!!
And this pretty number has just been popped into the shop and etsy.
What quilt will I start next I wonder?
