The not-so-serious Chinese coins quilt is finally done and it went on a little outing to the park with Maya and I on Sunday afternoon to enjoy the lovely Phoenix weather.

DSC_0881As you can see from the picture, I used a big running stitch for the quilting and kept is simple and graphic. The thread I used was Aurifil’s Lana  which which is a wool blend thread with a really nice, soft feel. It was surprisingly strong. I loved working with it!

DSC_0930 I also think the large prairie points adds a nice touch to the quilt, a bit of whimsy really.

This quilt is now going to my best friend Gerd, as a birthday gift.

Hope everybody had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend!
