Stacked Coins for a good cause.

This quilt was the February project from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts that Cait and I did.  I finished it today and I am donating it to a charity auction for a woman named Sarah Garcia, a 32 year old mother from my church that has triple negative breast cancer.  The benefit is Thursday night and I hope it goes to loving home and helps out the Garcias.

This goes on my list of favorite quilts.  I ventured into unknown territory for the quilting, trying a feather fill for the turquoise areas.  I definitely had a few puckers but overall it went really smoothly and much quicker than I anticipated.I backed it in some fabric I got from my cousin last year (from Ikea maybe?) that has a nice silver shimmer to it. I added one of my labels and bound it in a Habitat by Jay McCarroll and old Joel Dewberry print.

      1. Thanks so much, Coleen! I’m really happy with it too, it also uses some of my favorite fabrics. The solid I used was Kona cotton in Sage. I have since then developed quite the affinity for FreeSpirit Designer Solids (available at the Little General in WSNC!) and this color is very similar to their Light Jade which I will be using soon in a kaleidoscope quilt.
