After about a week, I finally got this quilt outside for some photos. They still aren't the best, I need to rig something to hang these finished on! Another thing for the 'honey-do' list. But here it is, my finished Sliced Coins Charity quilt.
I've been wanting to make this one for a while. I got some of these yellow/gray/black fat quarters during a fat quarter swap. They are really cool, but not my usual style. So I decided it would become a charity quilt.
When Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy announced her sliced coins quilt along I thought these would be perfect for it. Although at the time I think I had too many projects going on so it got put to the side for later.
One modification I had to make was that I didn't have enough gray sashing for the top and bottom. I set aside that gray months ago and I guess it wasn't the full measurement needed? And really, this quilt is 66" by 62" so it's already pretty large. I didn't want to run the risk of trying to figure out which grey it was and having the dye lots match.
The back is made up of scraps and a different grey I had lying around.
And I did the binding by machine again. I'm really loving this method. When you sew it down like this, you can feel where the binding is sewn down on the opposite side. You can use that to line everything up and make sure the front looks as good as the back! I used my Aurifil thread this time and I didn't get any jumping on my zig zags like I did here. That was definitely a thread/machine compatibility issue.
This quilt is off to Project Linus.
