After languishing in the WIP pile for over a year, these three liberated coin strips are now a quilt top!
Piecing the colorful strips was the fun part.....deciding on a sashing fabric was not.
In piecing the strips, I used a variety of solids in a rainbow of colors. The majority of fabrics are Kona solids, but you will also find some shot cottons, corduroy and even some silks in here.
Advice was asked and given for a possible sashing. Every solid color in my stash was auditioned, and I didn't like any of them. Wanting to finish this and move on to other projects, I finally went with this gray (believe it is Kona Ash), mainly because I had enough yardage on hand.
I'm not sure Kona Ash was the best choice for this project, but I am glad it is finally out of the WIP pile and ready to be basted. Surely, a colorful scrappy binding will liven this quilt up?!
Any suggestions on how to quilt this? Organic lines, a spiral, squares?
What about thread color? There are so many colors going on in this quilt.
Do I go with a neutral color, a variegated, switch thread colors to match the blocks?
I can't decide whether to go with a solid for the backing or a busy colorful print. That will probably depend on the answers to the how to quilt and what thread color to use questions ;-)
Thanks and happy stitching!
