JJ's African Coins Sept. 28
I have been cutting and piecing the vertical strips that will run through this quilt. You can see one here, lying over the uncut horizontal strips (still haven't gotten the nerve to cut them!). The vertical strips will have black running down each side, which will separate the yellow design from the horizontal strips.
If you want to see a small photo of what the finished quilt will look like (and see the online directions) go to the African Coins Quilt instruction page on the Simply Quilts website by clicking here: African Coins Quilt. I like our color selection better! And that's the way it should be. At the Timberlane Quilters' Guild site you can see another version that I like quite a bit -- though still not as much as ours! It's "(5) African Coins"; click on the photo of it to enlarge it. I do love how we can all use the same pattern and yet individualize it to suit ourselves.
