Stacked Coins Baby Quilt

Well, I completed another baby quilt tutorial by AmandaJean. This tutorial is found on Moda Bake Shop. I used Pampered Pooch Charm Pack that I won on Vickie's giveaway a while back. I also used some Hello Betty Charms that I purchased at my LQS. Due to my fabric choices, this is definitely the "scrappiest" quilt I have ever made. It takes a bit of getting used to. Husband and I had quite a discussion about its colorfulness. He was suprised that it was so busy because usually I choose collections that use just a few colors.

I really liked this pattern. It was fun and quick to make. It is great for a sewing pro who just wants to whip something up quickly or it would be good for a newbie as well. I would highly recommend anyone trying it. Thanks to all of those Moda Bake Shop designers, I know I am really enjoying all of their creativity!

This is my first pieced back. I cannot wait to see it finished.

It was a bit of headache though because my entire PP pack was cut at 5 inches by 4 7/8ths which made it a bit off. I was a little frustrated. It all turned out in the end though, so I guess that is what matters.

That's what I did this weekend, what about you?

That looks great Kris! Awesome job. I think I have to look into that tutorial a little more.

What did I do this weekend? A whole lot of everything and nothing. I DID go to the LQS today!

Your quilt is so cute, I really like it. I'm thinking of making this fun little quilt too. Looks like you used
2 1/2" strips instead of 3 1/2", that is what I'm thinking of doing too because I have a cream color solid jelly roll. I'll let you know when I get a chance to make mine. Love the strip of coins on the backing, great idea.
