Miss Kate Coins

Hello All!  I picked up a Miss Kate jelly roll and finished up this quilt top over the weekend, but between the rainy weekend, and the short daylight hours I've been foiled in my attempts to get a good picture of it.  I rushed outside before school today and snapped this one in the morning light.


I haven't pressed it yet, and in the biting 16 degree temperature this morning, I didn't take the time to smooth it out for the photo. (The sashing really is straight, I promise!)

I had fun putting this one together.  I've always liked coin quilts, but I wanted to make it a little more interesting by randomly arranging the coin strips.  It takes a little bit of planning, but I like the look.  Since this is such a great use of a jelly roll, I'm thinking of writing the pattern for it.  What do you think?

  1. That is really cute! I struggle what to do with jelly rolls sometimes. I think a pattern would be great and this layout is fun.

  2. This is really cute. I like how in some spots the white just looks like another piece of the strip, so it makes the strip look really long (like at the bottom row).

  13. You are a pattern makin machine! I've always been on the fence about coin quilts. I don't love the straight up and down rows, so this is great! :)

  17. I haven't used jelly rolls, but I do like to make coins from yardage. This is a cute quilt, and something I'd make, especially for a quick quilt for donation. I think a pattern is a good idea.
