Completed Mini Stacked Coins Quilt

The Mini Stacked Coins quilt is completed!  It measures appx 46 inches x 46 inches, a nice baby sized quilt.  Again, I used this quilt as my inspiration, and just adjusted the layout to my liking.

I used quite a few Robert Kaufman Play Day prints (love those elephants!) a few Kona solids and a few random left over prints for some other kiddo quilts I had worked on last year.

The back is Kona Orange and a Kona turquoise blue with a sashed piece of leftover scraps from the front.  I free motion quilted this using my favorite stippling that shows up really well on the back of the quilt.

The quilting step (particularly if I'm going to free motion quilt) is definitely my favorite part of the quilting process.  It's like a blank slate you get to put your design stamp on to enhance the fabrics on both the quilt top and back.  For those who may be wondering, doing the binding is definitly my least favorite part.  Now that I've gotten the hang of machine quilting the binding on to the back using Red Pepper Quilts binding tutorial, I don't mind it as much, but in the scheme of things, it's still my least favorite part of the process.

This quilt and the New Wave quilt will be soon off to their new owners, hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!

  1. Good luck for your Steelers! I am not rooting for a specific team, so maybe I'll pick them, too. :) Congrats on finishing your quilt! I like seeing the stacked coins twisted and turned different directions! If you're interested in replenshing your stash, I am hosting a fabric giveaway this weekend at =)

  2. Awesome! I love your quilt. I have been wanting to make a stacked coins quilt with some fabric I have coming, but I like your version much better! I'm going to bookmark it. Thanks! :-)

  3. You did a good job ! That stippling looks so good, and the loop-de-loop looks like it turned out well too, on the other quilt.
    I hope the lady who taught you and lent you her machine will get to see these in person before they are shipped. She will be proud of you and of her help.

  4. I love all the bright colors!
    And your quilting is beautiful.
