I was asked to make a few items for quilt market by one of my favorite fabric designers, Jenean Morrison! She has a line with Free Spirit Fabrics, and her new line is Wishing Well. I only had a few days to come up with a plan, and the fabrics inspired my to make this, Four Coins for the Wishing Well. The line is GORGEOUS. there are some small prints and ginghams that have a sugar sack feel, mixed with bold beautiful prints to bring together vintage and modern in one cohesive line. I am so in love with these fabrics! So I took a basic 4 patch and rail fence to mix up and give it a cuddle quilt feel.
