Color Study Chinese Coins Finished

Binding attached, signed, washed and dried. The Color Study quilt is ready to use. It's a lovely size for a throw and a friend of mine might enjoy it.

Back of the quilt is a collage of corals.

Originally, I wanted to bind the quilt in dark blue but didn't have enough of any. There was some bright orange/coral in the discard pile that worked well.

I found a Hobbs 100% cotton batt which is another favorite of mine. Plus, it's made in Mexia, Texas located between Dallas and Houston.

Maureen at MysticQuilter is working on these same blocks in batiks. We both enjoy mixing the many fabrics in within the constraints of a block. Each has its own individual style.

Enjoy the day, Ann

    1. Thanks. My sister thinks I should have named them better but numbering is an easy way to keep them straight.

  15. A great quilt, I really love how the colours dance across the quilt!

  16. I too like the coral. I also like the way one fabric sometimes runs across two bars and the way you have used really dark shades in your corners. In fact, in general these is something really pleasing about the distribution of colour and pattern in this.

    1. I enjoyed placing these blocks. It took several tried to get this arrangement. I'm so glad I took my time.

  17. I really like the layout on this one. I usually think colors need to be mixed up around the quilt and not bunched together if there are multiple colors. How wrong I am! Congrats on another beauty!

    1. Thanks, Cathy. I worked on the layout for several days. The first arrangement was much more random and I thought that would work (like you) but moving them made a tremendous difference

    1. I'm amazed how much it glows, too. And I'm glad the back is softer but coherent.
