|Beautiful old fashioned look with a modern feel!|
I should have known better because I really do love scrappy, crumby, string quilts and this one fits that bill perfectly. Using up some crumbs to make a quilt is a very frugal way to quilt but it is also very labour intensive and time consuming.

As I had posted previously, this quilt was inspired by a pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co. called Kissing Coins. The pattern used rectangles cut from a precut bundle of fabric. When I saw the photo of their quilt in my friend's magazine I knew I needed to make it with crumbs. They do have a YouTube video tute here.
This quilt finished at approx 49" x 62" and was quilted using a gray Cansew thread #6819 and lead gray magnaglide in the bobbin. I quilted it using the panto called Cool Beans by Apricot Moon Designs and I used Hobbs 80/20 cotton/poly for the batting.
I finished the quilt using a scrappy binding comprised of colours found in the backing fabric. I love it and I hope the person that receives it gets many, many years of comfort and joy whenever they use it.
