I've been saving ideas on a Pinterest board and collecting some fun coordinating accessories to tie the quilt in to the rest of the room. The hard part is that I don't know what the room itself will look like--by the time I get this project finished, we will be moving to a new house/town/state thanks to the good old US Coast Guard. But I want to have it ready to go when we get there, wherever there may be.

I started cutting the fabric this week. I don't want it to look too planned, but I am just not the type of person who can dive in with no plan at all! I am basing my design on the Uneven Coins quilt in Block Party. But I want my "coins" to be large enough to showcase the large-scale prints of the fabric.
I'm going to try out a method for making the strips that I found in my new book from Tula Pink. I think it will be a real time saver.
The plan is to make 5 columns of "coins", each column quilted as I go using the method I learned in Rachael's stocking pattern. Wish me luck!!
