Another Day Another Finish

It's a fine March morning here in Central Texas...the sun is shining with enough chill in the air to make Lulu our Boxer frisky.  My husband's trying to roast us in here...he's freezing, I'm sweltering. know I am getting to that age.  I see lots of layered clothing in his future.

I managed to finish this quilt top last night, but fell asleep before I could get it posted.  I call it Play Money because it reminds me of the Stacked Coins pattern with a fun and funky kid-type print that makes me think of Monopoly money.  The print is leftover from a quilt kit I purchased way back..and there's still loads left over for something else.

Which reminds me of my New Year's know, the one about no buying of fabric or patterns for 2012.  Yep, that one's endured the test of time....NOT!!  I'm throwing in the fat quarter and amending it to spend less on my hobby in 2012.  The ladies at the quilt shop have been kind enough not to say anything about it to me...thanks, girls!

A big welcome to my new followers...thanks for finding something fun and interesting here!  My son will soon be a teenager and there are plenty of quilting projects left to tackle so I'm sure there'll be plenty of fodder for future posts.  Stay tuned.

I'm linking up to Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Happy quilting, y'all!


  1. Oh! What a pretty quilt!!! I always love white back grounds. BTW you will be getting something in the mail soon........

  2. Very Pretty! It does kind of look like Monopoly money, now that you mention it.

  3. It's a lovely quilt. You did a fantastic job with the picture taking outside. This could be a second hobby for you.

  4. Very nice and kind of familiar as I am working on that type right now. That is impressive that it is from leftovers from a kit. I think since you SAVED all the money it would have cost to make this one you are now intitled to SPEND for the next one. LOL

    I really like your name for it. I totally see the Monopoly money now that you say it. I named mine Making Change because it is stacked coins that are then cut apart and put back together.

  5. We have a boxer too. Hates he cold and definitely dislikes snow!!

    Pretty quilt!!

  6. Great colorful quilt! The colors really shine on the white background.

  7. Such a pretty little coin quilt! Whoop whoop!
