Chinese Coins Quilts

These little Linus quilts were also made with the U3A. I cut thin white cotton strips 12.5" by 3.5" and the students sewed and flipped oblongs and strings on them in various colourways. Two were joined to make a single strip and joining strips of single fabrics were cut. On the finishing day waddings were spray basted to the backings the strips sewed and flipped quilt as you go. I bound the quilts while on holiday and once the students have seen them they will be passed to the Linus Lady.
