Chinese Coins Quilt Reveal

I finished the Chinese Coins quilt last week, but it has taken me some time to take quilt reveal photos. I wanted to try to make a nice vignette instead of showing just a flat quilt, and was trying to think of things to use. Since I am new to making vignette, I tried several different options.

When I went to Target, I saw a little scarecrow and pumpkins that I thought would be good for the display, but I didn't buy them because I decided I should be able to find things around the house that would work.  Then I went to the thrift store.  I have been looking for a doll bed.  I still haven't found one, but I found two chairs and this doll.

As you can see, I haven't quite mastered the art of the vignette.  The doll is a little bit early for Christmas, dressed in red and green. I now have enough chairs for a classroom, but still no bed.

The pattern is in Kathleen Tracy's book. It was a fun little quilt to make. I especially liked the fact that it did not have any half square triangles!

Your quilt looks beautiful. And the picture is so cute!

Oh that is too cute - one of my favorite patterns, so easy to use up scraps in a coin quilt. Love the little doll and chair too! I think you did fine with your vignette, that's something I need to master as well. Well, soon as I get my camera fixed, sigh.

The Chinese coins quilt is cute and the little doll really sets it off nicely too! I guess I should think about how I photograph my quilts.... They mostly lie on the floor...
