One More Scrappy Quilt

There will be a lot of scrappy quilts in my future as I challenge myself to make quilts using the fabrics I have rather than buying new fabric.  This one was make using a log cabinish style starting with a triangle center instead of a square.  I finished in early October.  It measures 48.5 in X 62 in.  Not sure who will receive it.

Coin Quilt

This quilt was made for my nephew.  It measures 87 in X 88 in.  I made the coin sections in a quilt as you go fashion. Then after putting all the pieces together added additional quilting. It was actually finished back in February but I just haven't gotten around to posting it.
