Design Wall Monday #12

Did you get to hear Judy Laquidara's radio interview back in February? I download Pat Sloan's quilting podcasts and I am always behind in listening, but this weekend I enjoyed quilting while catching up on the shows. 
Pat Sloan's Creative Talk RadioIt was delightful to hear Pat interviewing Judy, and to hear Judy's voice, after reading her Patchwork Times blog for so many years. If you would like to hear the show, go to the "All People Quilt" website (click here) then scroll down to see the listing of all the shows. If you click on the "2-13-12" show you can listen to Pat interviewing Judy (and a few other bloggers you might "know").
Anyway, it's Monday again and this is what is on my design wall today. My friend Barbara, my sister Jayne, and I started this quilt at Friday Night Sew In. Barbara did all the cutting, Jayne was our presser, and Barbara and I did the sewing.
The design is based on a quilt by Sarah Johnson in the book called Block PartyThe block is called "uneven coins".  We used our own measurements based on the size of the scraps we had.  The columns are approx. 12" wide. The top looks a little wonky, and I'm not sure if it's just the photo, or if I need to fix that?!?
Would you like to see other versions of this design??
To see a lovely quilt called "Stack of Pretty Books" made from an $8 bag of pink and grey scraps on a white background - click here. To see red scraps with a brown background project, click here.

I really like your scrap quilt. That might really make a nice charity quilt for a child. Great idea! Thanks.

I do like your bookstacks...that's what our library sorting room looks like mid-day. (Hmmm....a new place for a quilt?)

This is a fun design, Kathy. I liked seeing the different versions, too.
I don't recall if you mentioned this on your previous post of this design, but if the three of you worked on this, who actually takes possession upon completion--or is it being donated somewhere? : )

I like the uneven coins!! When you first look at it , it looked like a stack of books!! Love it!

Mary said...

a great way to use up the scraps of fun fabrics. Reminds me of the 'Fabric Library' quilt that was shown at our guild this month.

Love this! I'm working on a coin quilt of my own using only blue scraps from my stash, I'll be posting the results in a day or two I hope. Thanks for sharing.

It rather reminds me of a very colourful version of an innukshuk

Love this scrappy quilt. The blue fabric really makes it pop!!

Melinda said...

I have bright scraps on a white background to put the borders on so it can be quilted. I like yours a lot.

Connie said...

What a beautiful quilt and how fun for all of you to work on it together!

Fun and funky--I like it!

I love to listen to Pat's radio show when I'm sewing. It was fun hearing Judy instead of just reading her blog. Have a wonderful day!

Aren't you just wonderful!!! Thanks for noticing and linking my quilt. I LOVE the blue background fabric you choose and love that you went with three stacks, I only did two and the middle of my quilt has too much white. I am cuddled under it right now on my couch so it certainly doesn't take away from the comfort level any ;) love your quilt!!!
