Two Baby Coin Quilts

All done with these coin quilts that I made simultaneously.  I enjoyed making them at the same time.  Since they are this small (34″ x 46″) it didn’t feel like it took too long.

I really love so many of the fun fabrics in these!

I didn’t intend to do different backs, but after mistakenly I sewed the strip of patterned fabric upside down on the girl quilt, I thought, why not?!?

And some simple solid bindings. I have found that I really love solid bindings as a nice simple frame to the louder coin strips.

Up next, two more baby quilts, also made at the same time!

    Beautiful!!! I wish I knew more babies, because baby quilts are so nice and quick to make; usually, adding extra rows to a pattern still looks the same, just bigger. I could be so much more creative if I could make more (smaller) quilts… I’ll have to tell my friends to get a move on in the baby-department ;)
    Love to see new stuff on your blog :)

    These are so cute. And nice to have something that goes together fairly quickly. I just spent a weekend at a quilting retreat and spent from 1 p.m. Thursday through 8 p.m. Friday (with about 8 hours of sleep) making only FOUR blocks….for a BABY! It will be great when it’s finished but I decided that baby needed a much simpler quilt. And these are perfect!

    I love that ladybug material, it is so cute. I love that the 2 quilts match and compliment each other.

    Hey dear, love the quilts! I had a question.. I know it’s hard to tell in pictures sometimes because the lighting can be so different.. but is your background fabric white? Or is it a natural color? *trying to compare it to the white in some of the coins* I’d love to know what it is they’re beautiful! :)

    These are beautiful—I so love coin quilts. Lucky babies! :)

    Of course I suppose it makes perfect sense to sort of “assembly line” this particular quilt, since it even looks like an assembly line! Yet, the result is magical and I agree with you on the solid binding. Love it.

    I love both of these quilts, especially side by side like that. Great idea with the solid binding to frame the quilts – very nice work!

    Absolutely stunning as always.

    I love all the fabrics! I want each of them in turn. I love the owls and I see the Heather Ross horses peeking out there. It’s like a cavalcade of gorgeous fabrics. I put some beautiful fabrics up on my blog today too.

  16. Jackie March 9, 2009 at 5:47 pm #

    They are fabulous! What wonderful baby quilts!

  17. Maria March 9, 2009 at 6:35 pm #

    How gorgeous! I love that owl- fabric you used in the coin stacks.

  19. Amy March 10, 2009 at 4:02 am #

    That car fabric is too darned cute!

  20. Charlie March 10, 2009 at 6:54 am #

    Cute! Cute! Cute! Love how you used extras on the back.

  21. Regina March 10, 2009 at 9:59 am #

    Beautiful work!

  22. Stacy March 10, 2009 at 10:13 am #

    Lots and lots of baby quilts – love these as much as the last ones!

  23. amandajean March 10, 2009 at 3:24 pm #

    i can’t decide if i love the fronts or the backs better! they turned out so great. you do coin quilts so well!!!

  24. Cristin March 11, 2009 at 11:30 am #

    Well done! They look awesome!
    I’m working on 2 baby quilts at the same time too – but they’re not identical. And I agree – smaller quilts are not so… overwhelming!

  25. Millie March 11, 2009 at 12:14 pm #

    Absolutely lovely. I just love coin quilts and these baby ones are so pretty. And although they are almost the same, with the different binding there is a different feel to them.

    I am new here, did you ever post how to make these, I want to start quilting and I don’t know one thing about it, this looks like the overall design might not be too tough…or not?

  27. Ransacked Goods March 13, 2009 at 8:02 am #

    These are darling! I just love this simple pattern and you’ve put it together so well. The detail on the backs is great too. Nice to find your site.
