Day 29: my creative space....

This week in my creative space I actually have something creative to show everyone! Finally!


Earlier in the year I made a little quilt with my chenille scraps in the crazy log cabin block. It actually won second place in the local show in the item made from recycled materials section. Since then I have had little ideas bubbling on making other more traditional quilts using chenille, rather than just your usual squares joined together. Not all quilt blocks would work in chenille. Once I saw the stacked coin quilt I thought it would work well. I came across this tutorial that I thought would come together nicely. And this is the result. Well, just the top. What do you all think? Does it work?



Don't forget, one more day to enter my blogtoberfest giveaway, here.
