Coin Quilt Tops Finished from Wedding Dress Blue

That pile of scraps has become two baby quilts.

They are about 35″ x 37″. And it is fun to see them side by side.

They still need quilting, but soon…

Is this something you would like a tutorial for?

Coin Quilt Taking Shape from Wedding Dress Blue

The bits and pieces of a jelly roll project are continuing to take shape.

And helps to hide tiny differences in the width of the strips.

Scrappy Rescue: Coin Quilt(s) from Wedding Dress Blue

Once I started working on the jelly roll leftovers, I realized there was enough to make TWO coin style baby quilts, plus some leftover for another idea.

So, I cut all the pieces I could into strips 4-1/2″ wide.

And set the leftovers aside to be cut into 2-1/2″ squares, or sets, where possible. Smaller pieces will be cut into 2″ and 1-1/2″ squares.

Using every bit practical (NOTE: I didn’t say “every bit possible” because I have my limit, and that limit, most of the time, is 1-1/2″. Everyone needs to choose their own ...

A Good Scrappy Start from Wedding Dress Blue

These jelly roll leftovers came in a scrap bag. After the last batch, I vowed to take some process pictures of making a quilt with the leftovers.

This will be another coin quilt. Can you see it?
