Blogger's Quilt Festival!

I'ts time again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side! I always look forward to seeing all of the beautiful quilts that are shared and excited to share my own! 
It's actually about time. I started this quilt almost a year ago and then let other projects get in the way. You know how that is right? But I finished it just in time because it's such a fresh, springy quilt!

I had been really loving coin quilts but I wanted to shake it up a bit. I call this Crooked Coins. I shifted the "coins" and added some triangles. I love the simplicity and the way the colors look like they're floating on the quilt.
The fabric is Moda's Verna by Kate Spain. I LOVE me some Kate Spain! If I only had her fabric to use, I'd actually be a happy camper. I used a Verna jelly roll and a white Moda Bella solid jelly roll. I also used some white yardage. The back is a green Verna print and I pieced the border with the Verna jelly roll.
I did a simple all over machine stipple on this one. I love the crinkly goodness when it is washed!
I plan on making a tutorial for this one, so keep checking back. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh so precious. The simplicity of it with a splash of color makes it beautiful.

Your quilt looks deceptively simple and so very beautiful, I look forward to the tutorial as I've always wanted to make a coins quilt and think your idea is even better. Thank you for sharing it.

I can't wait for the tutorial - I must make one of these as I love the simplicity of it. This would be a wonderful summer quilt for down here in FL because it is visually cool and soothing, especially using the Verna and white. Thanks so much for sharing :)

I love the simplicity but I also love that it gives the impression of not being totally symmetrical. Sometimes I like things a little off kilter!
