coin quilts

Jennifer sent me the coolest link a while back to Australian quilt outfit Be Be Bold Quilts. They use a lot of japanese fabrics and simple designs.

One of these designs is the coin quilt made up of prints and solid sashings. I think I’ll try one of these next. Such a great way to showcase many different fabrics and still have a cool modern feel to it. It would make such a cute baby quilt too. Maybe even an "I spy" kinda deal with different objects from novelty prints in each square.

I really like Be Be Bold’s baby quilts too. Here’s a cute one – pink and red – yum yum!

    really fresh and lovely. The second and third one I REALLY love. I love it when quilts look sweet (not cute) and modern (but not to dang serious) and these both do that perfectly-the wide sashes would allow you to use any fabric with worry about the matchy-match-wonderful find!

    I love the dragonfly baby quilt on the site. and the fruit salad. they are all wondeful. I can never figure out how to get uneven blocks like the dragonfly one…

    thanks for this post! i think something like that coin quilt will be perfect for me to try. nice modern pattern, simple to assemble, big enough pieces of fabric to show the prints well but not so big that i can’t use some of my one-off scraps. yay!
