    Came across some scrappy spool swap blocks that had been hiding for several years and also a few mini Chinese coins that were hiding with them. Turned them all into dolly quilts for my Guild's Giving Stash. Around Christmas time we give the dolly quilts to a local seniors group who include them with their gifts to local Head Start kids. The quilts are wrapped around dolls for girls and and teddys for boys. May in Jersey

    That was the last of that fabric, hated to see it finished. Since the blocks were made by others I had fun matching them up with fabrics that I have. Sometimes I didn't have enough fabric as in the 2nd spool quilt, had to use 2 different fabrics for the binding. May

    If you go to modebakeshop.com and in the upper left hand corner is the search box, type in
    stacked coins quilt
    it will bring you to the directions. Size of the "coins" can vary, it's up to you. May in Jersey
