Coin quilt completed!

I finished up my Heather Ross coin quilt this weekend. I had been [slowly] working on the binding, which I chose to sew by hand. Friday I suddenly had a lot more time on my hands, due to a nasty sore throat. Most of the day was spent sewing on the couch.

I chose to back the quilt in the same cotton/linen blend I used as the front sashing (Essex blend in linen) and the binding in a solid forest green Kona cotton that I had in my sash. I really wanted to keep the binding and sashing simple in order to highlight the HR fabrics.
