I admit it. I cheated. Well sort of.
I've never constructed a coin quilt so the coin quilt piece along hosted by Orange Flower seemed a good incentive. I decided to call my first attempt a cheat by using a few Moda Jelly Rolls I had on hand. So, using one Moda Milk White Jelly Roll and one Tula Pink Nest Jelly Roll, I've pieced my first coin quilt.
A "cheat" coin quilt is easy to do. Just pair each patterned Jelly Roll strip and a plain colored (in this case Milk White) Jelly Roll strip with a 1/4 " seam. Press the seam to the patterned strip. Cut each strip pair into 6" segments. Take your large stack---mix them up---lay them out--shuffle until your happy---piece.
Next up----a "real" coin quilt using all the scraps that I didn't send to Christina in a more traditional form.
