and coins and coins!  Keeping busy getting started on some very simple stacked coin quilts.  I’m going to make two at once… One for a boy and one for a girl.


I love working with so many fun, bright and bold fabrics! It makes me happy.

Coins close up

And a gratuitous cat photo just ’cause.  She is as tiny as she looks.  I lucked out and got a perma-kitten.


Hope that you all have wonderful weekends!

    I love these.
    I started one of these today for a new baby girl.
    I’ll post about it sometime this weekend.
    Hope you have a good weekend too.

    The quilts look super! But the kitty picture is the best – she is adorable! I absolutely love cats but I’m allergic to them. I keep wondering why couldn’t I have been allergic to frogs or something like that. . . ?

    My cats are small too, my GF calls then mini-kitties!

    Love your coins in progress too!

    This is a great post! So many things to make you feel happy. Cute fabric and a cute kitten.

    Hold out for the fish to arrive! They are on the way and would fit right into that quilt.

    I love coin quilts! Those fabrics are quite cheerful.

    My sister and I have a “perma-kitten” (cute word!) as well. His brother is, well, panther-like. The little one is noticeably smaller and considerably lighter. But he holds his own when they wrestle or chase each other. Also, I am a sucker for a cat on fabric!

    Your fabrics make me happy too!

    Your coins are looking great! I think this is a perfect pattern to do with lots of fun and different prints. I had to let loose when picking out the fabrics for my coin quilt, and I am glad I did! :)

    Very cute!

    I really want to make another one of these soon. I did a color wheel type one:

    I tried to do it entirely from scraps, just a wee bit of cutting from the stash. I loved the process. A few beers are necessary.

    love the coins and my son had a cat that just passed away and it was that tiny and it was already 15yrs. old we never could understand why it never grew…not even the doc had a clue.
