Kelsee's Quilt

Time for posting another quilt.  This one was made in 2009 for my husband's granddaughter Kelsee when she graduated from high school.

This is called a "coin" quilt, or sometimes "Chinese Coins".  It is usually made with white sashing between the stacked fabric strips but I thought the black made the bright colors really stand out.  That and the fact that Kelsee is not really a white kind of girl. 

One of the things I like most about quilt making is putting the colors together. It was so much fun picking out all these fabrics but since I didn't know how much I'd need of each color, I have a lot left over.  They'll show up in another quilt someday.  In fact, I have some set aside for a quilt pattern that I was intrigued by but haven't had a chance to make yet.


  1. I love the black with the bright colors also! Beautiful! Thank you for all your recent comments on my blog! It's so nice to get feedback from others. I'm so sorry I haven't gotton back to you sooner. I will try to do better in the future!

  2. Ohhhh, this is so striking! I love the black behind the bright colours. You made the right choice!!
