Its a beige background, blues and browns blocks with solid black as the coins. I also found a backing with a black background and lots of bicycles.

fabstripper, you are making it too hard! This quilt has only two size pieces----one is a 6 1/2" x 3 1/2" rectangle and the other is 3 1/2" squares. all fabrics are first cut into 3 1/2" WOF strips. The solid white and bLack/white print strips are subcut into 6

I added a row of the pieced blocks to the back for a little added interest. Just quilted SITD myself. Another Christmas gift done!!

Her bed is an XL Twin, so I had to add 26" to the overall pattern, just to get it the size of her mattress. When I asked about how much she wanted hanging down the sides and end, she didn't want any, but I added

I changed mine up a little and instead of 4 different Christmas fabrics I used 2. I like the way it turned out. The white part I quilted using my walking foot.

Each year the quilt store sells a fat eighth of challenge fabric to those who are interested in making a block. All the money goes to a local charity and the quilt made from the finished blocks gets raffled off the next year with those proceeds going to the same charity. All of the 12

Abouth the second one: Last week recycler posted a quilt that I copied ("copied" is such a nasty word!), but I guess that is what I did, but used larger squares,
