String Coins finished

I finished stitching the binding last night on the String Coins quilt and even got a HeartStrings label sewn on. Once it’s washed it will go in the pile with the other ones to be donated. The hearts and loops quilting went really fast so I was able to quilt and bind it yesterday. I didn’t have enough of the green print I wanted to use for a backing so I added 8 fat quarters and pieced it to make it large enough. The quilting blends into the print but shows up nicely on the fat quarters.


  1. I really turned out to be a gorgeous quilt, Mary. I think I need to put that design in my “to do” list. And the quilting is beautiful, too.

  2. I love the color choices! I was in a quilt shop yesterday that sells more vibrant colors. I thought of you, lol. And how I needed to think “outside the box” with some of my fabric selections.I am 1/3 finished with the college quilt pattern you gave me. Once again, thank you so very much! It is turning out great!

  3. What a nice happy quilt. I enjoy bright colors. I do like the machine quilting on it. Adds a nice happy touch. Thanks for visiting my blog. Keep well! Happy quilting!

  4. This is one of my favorites! This is a very cheerful quilt against a very stark landscape with all the snow you have been having! Did you freehand the hearts and loops or is that a panto? You did an excellent job–very appropriate for the heartstrings project.
