Love these colors! Do you know the origin of the name of this quilt pattern? Glad to hear you are on the mend!

Lovely quilt! Why is it called a coin quilt? I love the strippiness of it, and would love to try one like that. Did you use a pattern or just let the idea develop as you went along? Hugs, Cat K

Beautifully made quilts. I am curious about the Coin Quilt and would love to know it's reason for being called that.
Also love your large hexie quilt. You do such nice work.

Coin quilt, aka Chinese Coin quilt, Stacked Coins, Romans Coins, Bars, etc.

I could not find the origin of the name, but I did find many names!

I assume the name refers to rows of stacked coins as the fabric pieces are narrow and stacked up, then sit in rows.

Hope this helps the curious! :)
