Stacked Coin Quilt - Part 5

The espresso fabric arrived on Tues so I've been busy cutting and sewing the last 3 evenings and I've got the quilt top finished. I am very pleased with how it turned out. The picture doesn't do it justice since I had a hard time fine tuning the colours. The camera just didn't do a good job of capturing the colours in the artificial light. Day light would have been better but then I would have had to wait until tomorrow to make this post.

This is the quilt top for the new layout that has 4 colours removed so the quilt is actually going to be more square than rectangular. I now have to piece together a back which for this one I'm going to use the same espresso fabric and then I can make up the quilt sandwich and start quilting.

One thing I have to mention is that this top went together very easily and I have to say if it wasn't for my weekly Friday Block Party blocks that I do (see link on right hand side of my blog) it would have be much more difficult. Thanks go out to Quilt Pixie for running the Friday Block Party site and her advice on some of those more challenging blocks.

I love how the various widths of the coin columns all play together -- lots of movement betweenthe strata gradations and the width :-)
