She is super nice like that, it was the funnest package to receive! I am making three quilts from my stash for Christmas gifts this year. I already made Quilt #1. So, these two layer cakes were used to make Quilt #2. A layer cake consists of approximately 40 fabrics, and are 10 x 10 inches square.
I had the red sashing/border fabric in my stash, and I was happy it matched so well. Reds can be tricky. I did have to buy the backing, a soft red flannel. Making a coin quilt is very simple, I used the whole 10” x 10” square, so there was no waste.
I machine straight stitched using my walking foot a quarter inch from the sashing. Also, I lengthened my stitches just a little from the standard used on my machine. It helped a lot. My machine fed the quilt through much easier, and the stitching looks neater too. I’ve never done that before, and I will from now on.
The size of this quilt is: 88" x 61"
Okay, can you guys believe it is November??? Wow! We were all sick on Halloween unfortunately, my poor kids couldn’t dress up and go trick or treating, I felt so bad for them. We are finally feeling normal again, and hope to start on some Christmas gifts this month. At least I have this quilt crossed off of my list. Quilt #3 needs to be basted and quilted, then I will have them all done.
