Carole's Chinese Coins

Carole is coming through town next week on her way to Paducah, the lucky dog! She made this quilt to give to the person who's house they are staying at. It sounds like a win-win situation to me. They get homey accommodations and the homeowner gets a quilt.

She said to make it pretty, so that's what I tried to do. Diagonal crosshatching in the coins, bumpy feathers in the sashing and big border and a feather swirl in the outer border.

The back looks pretty good too!

Looks great. Your quilting has turned a simple quilt pattern into a piece of art. I'm sure the recipient is going to love it.
