Colorful Coins Quilt Pattern
Baby Size: approx. 32”x36”can be easily adjusted to makeA larger quilt.I created this pattern because I love the look of a CoinQuilt, but couldn’t find a simple fast pattern that usedlarge blocks of color. This is a very easy and quick quilt,and great for someone just beginning!
: In all of my fabric measurements I round up, its much harder to
run out of fabric then to have some extra left over!-1/2 yard total various colorful fabrics ( or use scraps of fabric that are at least3”x6”)-1 yard white quilting fabric-1 yard backing (I prefer flannel for baby blankets because it’s softer)-1/4 yard colorful fabric for binding
-1 yard (45” wide) batting, I prefer warm and natural white or Hobbs 80/20.Warm and Natural is available at most craft and quilt stores or large retailerslike Walmart.
Cutting the fabric:
-from your colorful fabrics cut 28 blocks 3” x 6” wide. The fastest way to dothis if you are using large pieces of fabrics is to cut strips 3” wide the length ofthe fabric, and then trim multiple strips at one time to 6” long.-from your white fabric cut 28 more blocks 3”x6” wide. Again, cut the fabriclength into 3” strips first and then trim to 6”, so you will have enough largefabric pieces for the rest of the quilt top.-with the remaining white fabric cut 7 strips 3” wide the length of the fabric(approx, 45” )
Sewing instructions:
-use 1/4” seam allowances-The quilt top is pieced together by first sewing your colorful blocks and whiteblocks together, alternating color and white until you have 14 blocks percolumn. Then after each column of blocks has been sewn together we will sewthe white strips in between.-First layout all your color blocks where you want them in the quilt top. Thefirst column will start with a color block and end with a white block; the secondcolumn will start with a white block and end with a color block. This sequenceis repeated once for a total of 4 columns.*See picture 2-After you have laid out your quilt top, sew each column together separatelymaking sure that white and color blocks alternate accordingly. Refer to thepictures if you have questions about layout.*See picture 2
-After each column is sewn together, iron each column making sure to press theseams towards the color blocks. You don’t want your colorful seams to showthrough the quilt top after its sewn together so it’s important that you press eachseam towards the nearest color block.-Layout your columns again on the floor, and start sewing on your whitestrips. Start with the border of the first column, and continue to sew thecolumns together until you have all 5 strips sewn on and all your columns aresewn together with white strips in between. Make sure when you are sewingyour strips onto each column that you watch which way the seams are pressedand sew over the seams so they will be facing the right direction. Because youhave to press the seams different directions so they don’t show through the quilttop, you must sometimes sew the seams down the opposite direction you aresewing.*See picture 3-iron again, pressing each seam towards the colored blocks.-trim off excess white fabric at the ends.-sew on the top borders.-press once more making sure there aren’t any colored seams showing throughthe white quilt top that need to be pressed towards a colored block.-Your quilt top is now finished and ready for basting, quilting and binding!
Finishing the Quilt and Adjusting the Size:
- To make your quilt top larger than a baby size, simply add more blocks ontoeach column, and add more columns. If you make it larger you will need topiece your strips together to make each white strip long enough.-I do not include instructions for basting, quilting and binding the quilt top,but there are many good resources online or at your local quilt shop if you need
