By rotary cutting 2.5 inch strips from my leftover City Weekend fabric scraps, sewing a 1.5 inch strip of white fabric to the length of the first strip, and cross cutting this strip into 2.5 inch units, this quilt comes together really quickly. Arrange the two-piece units at random and sew together into rows, then sew rows together. Lots of strip and chain piecing.
The back of the quilt is pieced, again using scraps ( I cannot believe how much CW fabric I've still got left!). And did you see the quilting? Not a straight line in sight:
A wavy line of running stitches - one of the decorative stitches on my sewing machine. This was so easy and fun to do, I didn't have to move the fabric from side to side to create the wavy line, instead the needle changes position with every stitch.
And another deviation from RPQ "standard practice": a stripey binding. The color match was perfect and I couldn't resist this cute combination.
The City Weekend Coin Quilt is for sale. You can find it listed in my Etsy Store. SOLD
