Coin Top Done

close 2, originally uploaded by banquopack.

I finished my coin top last night. I really love Moda's Neptune line and used 3 charm packs. The sashing is white linen. I thought it would give a nice beachy/summery texture.

I plan on piecing six squares for the back that will feature my favorite charms. But I goofed and didn't get enough white linen for the whole back, so I may throw in some sand-colored oxford cloth from the stash. I can't wait to see what this looks like all quilted and crinkly, but I have to sidetrack to Medieval costume making for my 6th grader's big speech next week.

oh just get right out of town. moda's neptune line (in blue and green) is the basis for my stacked coins quilt too. this is gorgeous, the blues really tie it together; it's interesting and really celebrates the fabric choices. good luck on the costume... you are REALLY springing to finish!

This quilt top is awesome. I also love Neptune and I think you enhanced the fabric so well.
