Today we get to share how to make an easy baby coin quilt as a part of Down Grapevine Lane’s fabric tour!
Sedef’s new fabric line was designed for Riley Blake designs and was so sweet I knew immediately that I wanted to make a baby quilt with it!
And a coin quilt would allow me to not only use a lot of the different prints in her line but is a quilt that sews up in a hurry!
Let me show you how I put it together:
#1. Cut 17 strips of patterned fabric at 2.5″ tall and 9″ wide.
#2. Lay them in out in the order of your choice.
#3. Sew them together using a .25″ seam allowance.
#4. Press seams in the direction of your choice. (For example press all seams to towards the top or to the bottom or alternate directions.) On a coin quilt the direction you press your seams doesn’t really matter…as long as they are nicely pressed. 🙂
#5. Cut your side pieces. Cut one piece to measure 34″ tall and 6.5″ wide. Cut the other piece to measure 34″ tall and 18.5″ wide.
(Note: Please measure the how tall your strip pieced strip is before cutting your side pieces! Depending on your sewing and seam allowances you may need to add or subtract a half inch or two! Soooo….if your pieced strip turns out to only be 33″ tall then only cut each side piece to be 33″ tall. The width will remain the same but you want the height on each side to match the piece down the middle!)
#6. Once your sides are cut sew them onto your pieced middle using a .25″ seam allowance.
#7. Press your seams away from the white and toward the pieced middle section.
#8. Create a back panel that is at least 2 inches larger than the quilt top you have just created.
#9. Choose your method for finishing the quilt….machine quilting, free motion quilting, hand quilting, tying, etc.
#10. Add your binding. (You will need 5 strips of fabric cut at 2.5″ by the width of the fabric to create the binding for this quilt.)
And you are done!
It is super easy and I always love the end result of a coin quilt!
