If you prefer to tat and not sew, tatted strips should be 5" and not wider than 2.5" (13.5 x 6 cm.) Individual motifs must fit in a space that size on the strip. Just mail the tatting to me and I will sew it down.
This quilt is known online as the “Chinese Coin.” The several versions of the entire pattern is available for free online. It is a series of short strips of varying fabrics sewn together into columns and then into several rows across. Let’s strive for at least 5 columns which should make a twin size quilt. If we have more blocks decorated we can go for a queen size one.
Our blocks will have three different strips sewn together. The tatting may be anything decorative. Some of the strips will be plain, solid colors, solid colors with a faint
background design, or bright and beautiful patterns. The tatter is encouraged to take their inspiration from the patterns, colors or their imagination.
The strips may vary in decoration, i.e., they do not have to be the same design on each strip. The strips are horizontal. Edging need not be centered on one block. Consider using the center strip as the base line and place two different edgings on each strip facing into the center or facing into the partner strips. The design may be individual motifs as well.
So far these beautiful blocks have been sent in for the quilt. I hope you will be inspired to help us, too.
