    Here's #5 on 2013 mission to use up scraps

    Just off the frame. My version of stacked coins. Not a good picture, it is prettier in person, second pic is better. I offset the squares to give some movement, also less seams to match. Quilted with allover feathered leaf pattern in varigated thread in browns, golds, yellow and bits of red. Used high loft poly batting for first time. I like that is more fluffy.

    My pics usually look like that because behind where I hang them is a wall size bank of windows where I can look out and see the river, also brightens up my sewing room. Unfortunately the sun comes in that direction most of the day so it taxes my limited picture taking skills. May have to start taking them at night.

    So very pretty!!! Also it is such a work saving idea to offset the blocks - not to mention that it is more interesting.

    Very pretty. Reminds me of stained glass. Love your idea of offsetting your squares. Very clever and effective!

    This is an amazing quilt. Very beautiful. Would you mind sharing how you did this? I see the black patches seem to be every 5th square in a row, with their seams lined up instead of offset. Is that true? Are the blacks a bit larger than the colors? Can't quite figure out how you get them offset, but I love the effect, not to mention the ease of putting the rows together. Very clever! Thanks for posting. Regina

    I really like this, and I'm going to have to google how to make this because I can't figure out how you measured for the offset. It's beautiful!

    I did not have a pattern just made it up. What I did: sew 4 strips 2 1/2 in wide into strip set. Sub cut set into 3in sections. Sew 3 inch square of black onto end of each section. Sew these together alternating black at top then next at bottom and so forth till reach width you want quilt to be. Do same with next row then sew rows together. Only seams to match are where the black squares meet.

    I love this Scrappy! Off-setting the blocks is so cool and makes the the stacked coins look just as they should! I will definitely add this one to my todo list. I hit the like button on this one!

    Very nicely done. i like the idea of off-setting the squares. I have been hesitant in using my squares to do one of these quilts because I would have too match perfetly the seams or I would be mad! So I like the way you off-set them!!! Yeah!!!
