Magic Coins Quilt Kit from In The Beginning

We featured these beautiful prints as soon as they arrived, and now we would like to share the quilt we made using them. Why would we want to reinvent the wheel when this beautiful quilt was designed by Jason Yenter for In the Beginning Fabrics.

Our kit is for the 87″ x 101″ size quilt and contains all the fabrics including the binding to complete the quilt top. The book is also included. The quilt pictured is one circle smaller in the width and length than the quilt in the book. We don’t have the wall space to hang a quilt that large so our sample is approx. 74″ x 88″. The kit contains the fabrics to complete the larger size. If you decide to do the smaller size, you will have fabric to start a patchwork on the back.

The instructions in the booklet are for applique. We chose to do a raw edge applique with a tiny zig zag. You might prefer hand applique or piecing with a circle template.

This collection of prints is one of the most amazing we have seen. You might have different plans for a quilt.

If there is one fabric company that truly does it’s “own thing” it is Alexander Henry. You will find eclectic, folkloric, ethnic, and fanciful prints from this company. There is never a “collection” of coordinates. That’s too mundane for them. Check out our newest prints.

These are some other prints that arrived a few months ago.

Love them or hate them….these prints definitely get a reaction!

Promenade from 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics

Moda brings back those vintage looks of pastel prints in soft colors that just blend into each other. The perfect quilt for this collection is our simple Pieces of Eight. It takes just 8 – 1/2yds pieces. Seven of the fabrics are cut into eight inch squares and the eighth fabric is the binding. Nothing to it, so great for beginners or as a quick gift. Along with our kit, we have offered a pre-cut backing of the fabric we used. You can select your own backing by purchasing 4 1/4yds.

If you have your own favorite pattern, we have these fabrics available.
