Stacked Coins Baby Quilt

Posted by Anne on July 26, 2009 at 7:26 am.

I’ve wanting to share this for weeks! My first finished quilt!

I had be all hush-hush about it because the quilt was a gift for my friend Jill, who’s having a baby girl in September. Now, after a fun afternoon of gossiping, onsie-decorating, and cheesy ’80s movie watching (aka the baby shower), the quilt is in her possession and I can safely play show and tell.

You could say this is a do-what-the-internet-tells-you quilt. I used the stacked coins baby quilt tutorial on Moda Bake Shop (only using a jelly roll instead of charm packs for the coins), referred to the super-easy-to-understand instructions on quilt-sandwiching and binding-making in Oh, Fransson’s Quilt Along, and flipped through the Coin Quilt piece-along flickr pool for ideas on how to do the actual quilting. ( I picked the simplest option because I like the way that it emphasizes the lines of the stacks of coins. And, um, yes, because it was simple.)

It was a pretty easy project for a beginner. Mostly I liked that there was no fussy measuring and piecing. Just sewing strips of fabric together. But I also really love the simple design, and the way that it allows you to incorporate a lot of fabrics without it being overwhelming and busy.

Congrats Jill! I can’t wait to meet your little girl!
