Friday Night Sew-In: Results!

Friday night was sew-in! And I managed to get that much closer to finished with my Sliced Coins quilt!

I got the back pieced together, with every last scrap I had:

Backing--every last scrap I had!

And I got it basted! I ran out of pins in the last corner, so a little bit is basted with basting spray.

All together now


This little quilt even gave me its name while I was working: "Birdhouse in Your Soul"

Birdhouse in your soul

Now I'm debating how to quilt it--I'm wanting to do some free-motion, but I'm not sure if I want to try stippling or what. I was at the Rock River Modern Quilt Guild meeting today (what fun ladies!) and I saw some wonderful loopy quilting that I liked a lot.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome! :)


  1. Looks great! I am about 3/4 of the way done quilting mine, then on to binding. :)

  2. I always baste with pins and it turns out fine. Your sliced coins look great. Love the colors. I am working on my quilting will soon be finished! Great FNSI.

  3. quilt looks very the quilting you liked on it....if you don't; you'll wonder what it would have looked like......

  4. I love the back! So piecey (is that a word?) and fun. Good job getting it basted too, that's not a fun part of the process.

  5. great job on your quilt!
    it was fun meeting you at the RRMQG :)

  6. Those are interesting pins. They look easy to use. I usually baste with pins first in case I have to pick it up before I get all the thread in.
