Customer Quilt – African Coins Quilt




These are pictures of a customer quilt that I just finished. It is called African Coins. The fabrics in this quilt really make the quilt. This quilt was quilted with my Zig Zag template on the coloured fabrics and the Wave template on the black and white fabrics. There were lots of thread changes on this quilt with King Tut variegated thread called Pharaoh’s Treasures on the coloured fabrics and So Fine Charcoal on the black and white fabrics. The back of this quilt was brown flannel which combined with the Hobbs Heirloom batting makes for a quilt high on the cuddle factor scale!
If you are interested in making your own version of this quilt, this is a link to an article on HGTV’s web site which describes how to make a quilt similar to this one: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_quilting_instructions/article/0,1789,HGTV_3302_3064861,00.html

  1. I love that first photo that shows the whole quilt. You can really see the jungle and the savannah areas. The black and white strips she did emphasize it, too. Your quilting is a great complement to the piecing. Thanks for sharing this one!

  2. Wow, that is such a striking quilt! I love it! The black and white fabric really makes it look exotic.

    Good job on the garage sale find. Those would fit right in with my stash!!

  3. I love this quilt! Thanks for providing the link. It’s fun looking. And boy did you ever hit the jack pot at that garage sale!!! I never see anything good when I go looking. Only once did I find a coupla yards of good fabric. Have fun :)

  4. Your customer did a great job on this one. The colors and fabrics she used for the string/coins area blend so nicely together. And the ziggie areas are an interesting contrast. I will check out the site you gave as you never seem to steer me wrong!

  5. Great quilt. And thanks so much for the link – I am still looking for ideas for all the African fabric I bought at The Thread Bear a couple of months back.

    Fantastic find at the garage sale, hmmm, maybe I should start garage sailing!!
