{Sew} Modern Monday #7

It's time for another weekly edition of 
here at Canoe Ridge Creations!
{Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations
This week I am very excited to share with you my completed Sliced Coins Quilt from the quilt along over at Don't Call Me Betsy.

I had planned on giving this quilt to my sister when she graduates from high school this spring.  That was until she made a passing comment that she wasn't a huge fan of gray.  Eeek!  She might change her mind after she reads this post. :)  I have to admit though, I wasn't too crushed.  It just means I get to enjoy this one myself!

For the quilting, I went with simple wavy lines using the zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine.  Thanks Lee for the inspiration.  Have you seen this quilting method?  All you have to do is lengthen your zig-zag stitch and you're off.  It is so great and offers a fast and easy alternative to an all over FMQ pattern!  I just love the look of it on this quilt.

I used the same stitch to sew the binding down.

Love these little birds!

  12. great finish! your quilts always inspire me to get behind the sewing machine! Thanks for hosting I am so enjoying sharing and seeing what everyone else has been creating. Oh and I can't wait to try the long zig-zag quilting technique either!

  13. Megan,
    I have been following your blog for awhile, but I have never commented. I love this quilt and especially the wavy quilt lines and the binding. I bet your sister changes her mind!

  14. Ooooo I was waiting to see your finished quilt! It is so beautiful, and I really enjoy the wavy line quilting...think I'm going to try that on my next quilt!

  15. This looks amazing! If your sister doesn't want it, shes crazy! Haha. Those colors are so so pretty together. Great job!

  16. It looks awesome. Awesome. And I like how you used the zig zag for the binding! I have only done machine binding once, but hated how hard it was to be PERFECTLY STRAIGHT along the edge. This would eliminate that issue. Hmmm....might try...

    Quilt 4 of 2011? You go girl! I am coming up your butt though, hoping to finish 3 quilt WIPS this week to bring me up to 5, so you better get sewing! ;)

  17. Can I ask you some silly questions? I'm going to quilt a quilt tomorrow night, and I think I want to do the wavy lines like you've done here...are you able to do this with a walking foot? And also, how far apart did you sew the lines? Did you use a guide, or...? I'm really excited about this, because quilting is my least favorite part and I'm looking forward to only having to do it in one direction (and that's really nice about the binding, too!).

    Thanks for your help. :-)

  22. I like the grey. I am collecting some Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley in cool tones to use with three different shades of grey to piece together a bed size quilt. (My first).
