    I hope I can get away with calling this a chinese coin...I made this from left overs from some of my bargello or trip around the world strip pieced panels.

    I really like it better than if you had used a solid strip of color.

    It looks lovely with all the shaded fabrics.


    I "think" they call this version of Chinese Coins, "Stacked Coins".
    Yes? No?

    So now you have tempted us ... please show us the parent bargello from which this quilt came!! :)
    Please? and Thanks!

    These came from several quilts. I will see if I have pictures of some of them and post them later.

    I've always wanted to make one of these, however, I am afraid I will make a mess of the colors, I am not good at random. This one is sew beautiful! :)

    That is lovely .... did you strip the print and the white pieces together and then sash with the additional white?

    .... or did you overlay/applique the print-pieces onto one big piece of white

    I can't tell by the close up, as your work is so precise ...

    I don't have the quilt here and couldn't remember how I did that. I checked the picture I have on my Etsy site (full size) and I can see that I cut the white to match the size of the pieced prints. Can't remember the size though. Then did the vertical shashing.
