First finish

Last april I decided it was the perfect time to start working on patchwork in earnest. For some reason I had always been putting it off.

I had scraps from my hand sewed log cabin left over so I decided to do a version of a coin quilt. I had to get some extra fabric for the borders and binding.

I also used the machine to quilt it. I didn't have a clue how to do it and my old machine didn't work very well, but I managed to get a wavy pattern done. I was pleased with how it turned out. The coins are not squared off at all, they somehow went a bit wonky.

The worse part though was the binding, I was trying to follow instructions I had in a book but totally misunderstood so I didn't fold it first. It means it is large and empty.

It amuses me though, when I look at it so I haven't ever been tempted to fix it.
