Just a Peek Quilt.

I finished my first stacked coins quit today and I could not be happier with it! My mom helped me figure out a pattern, mainly how wide I should make the orange strips and the white sashing, I think it turned out great.

I did not have enough of the "Tossed Trees" fabric that I bought at JoAnn's for the back of the quilt, so I improvised and added some white and I love it.

I found this great stripe material for the binding from Sandi Henderson Farmer's Market line, which I LOVE. It was the first time I did this kind of binding, I always do continuous bias binding, but that wouldn't work with a stripe.

Here is the ric rack sewed on a strip before I made the top of the quilt. I love the little bits of ric rack, I am totally going to use it again in a quilt.

When I am done with a quilt, I fold it up and just look at it. I know it is weird, but that is what I do.


It measures 65x85. Long enough for my husband, who is 6'4", to lay under.

It looks so good! I actually think I like the back more with the white than if it had been all the trees. I love that it is so big - and it's not scrunchy!! :)

I love the backing fabric. I need to check out my local Joanns. I like the white on the back, it looks a little like a tree with a branch out to the side.

It looks great. A good choice of colours.

After seeing your bits if ric rac i though about adding some to my emily quilt, but i think bits of black and red velvet ribbon would be better :-)

I've already told you how much I love this quilt. Infact, it's the inspiration for one of my "projects". I'll let you know when it's done.

Hi Darci ~ Today I took the time to go through your blog. Wow, you make wonderful quilts. I really really love the colors you use. They are so bright and happy. Having these around you, you can never be in a gloomy mood, I think.
Have a happy Friday and a lovely weekend (O:

Hi, I love this quilt. It's so bright and cheerful. I think I'll have to have a go at the stacked coins pattern sometime.
