    Thanks n2-
    The coins are 3/4 x 1 1/4 cut pieces.
    Step 1. Sew 2 pieces together. Do several pairs.
    Step 2. Sew 2 sets of pairs together for a group of 4 coins. Again do several sets.
    Step 4. Sew one group of four to another. Repeat until you get desired length. Each strip set has 23 strips so one of the groups of four can have a coin taken off.
    Step 5. Cut 4-1 1/4 strips the length of the strip set and attach to sides of the 3 strip sets. Cut 2-1 1/4 strips for the top and bottom border the width of the strips.
    Step 6. Cit 1 1/2" strip wof for outside borders. Bind and enjoy!

    Thank you, Gladie! Have always wanted to do CC but it's on the "to do" list for sure. Thanks for your instructions. Sewing by groups minimizes any haywire sewing. I think my coins will have to be bigger than that - they just keep multiplying! lol.

    :D

    Wow! it is so hard to keep such tiny work looking straight. You did a fabulous job of this! Hard to believe it's so small. The stamp really puts it in perspective.
