Moving Along Slow But Sure



I am making progress on the Chinese Coins but its going slow. I ran out of black fabric and needed to go get more. Then it had to be washed and is waiting to be ironed. I have one more colored strip made and need to make one more. Not sure what I am doing after that as far as borders go. To be honest, not entirely sure I even like this. Maybe it will grow on me as it comes more together?

If you notice, I did NOT lay it out on the floor for Paris to drape her furry self on the black fabric! It is usually the hard way, but I do learn. Cats and black fabric do not go together really well even if she likes the quilt.

There certainly is nothing Chinese about this quilt even though that is the pattern name. Needs something much more tropical............any suggestions?

I love it! I think it's coming out nicely.

It's looking good. I think when the colours are all surrounded by black it will look 'more right' maybe? I really like how it is turning out. I think a 'tropical' name would be more in keeping than chinese coins!

Very bright and cheerful. The quilting will decide how much you like the quilt. This one has lots of room for playing! Jungle Feathers? Rainforest Serenade? Parrot Nest? Inchworms? LOL!
