I finished the Stacked Coin Quilt!

Here it is!  All finished! There’s nothing like pulling a finished quilt out of the dryer and finally getting to see it in its fully crinkled glory.

Stacked Coin Quilt

It’s the biggest quilt I’ve free motioned.  I luckily don’t seem to have that many struggles with shoving a big ol’ quilt around in my sewing machine.  Maybe I just don’t know better, but I seem to manage alright.  I don’t roll the quilt (much) but I bunch and shove it all over the place.

Stacked Coin Quilt - Detail

This quilt was based on my Gender Neutral Baby Quilt but full sized, and the color scheme is similar, but somewhat more “adult”. I’m happy with the results and I hope its owner will be too!!

And three fun log cabin blocks for the back!

    Beautiful and great job on the quilting! I struggle with large projects so I leave it to the professionals and do my own smaller projects. Love the back.

    Love that quilt! I really want to make one of these, problem is my “want to make” list has about thirty quilts on it! Great job.

    I LOVE IT!!!

  16. Mindy September 15, 2008 at 8:09 am #

    That is gorgeous! I have what is probably a really stupid question. Where do you find base material that is so wide?

  17. randi September 16, 2008 at 8:01 pm #

    This came out perfect! Love it!

    this turned out wonderfully! i can’t imagine shoving a full sized through the machine. i had trouble with hannah’s twin size. i love your attitude…just do it!

  22. Priscilla September 27, 2008 at 1:39 pm #

    This is wonderful – you’ve done a fantastic job. Can I ask what type of sewing machine you have?

  23. Lisa October 7, 2008 at 12:53 pm #

    Ok, I can’t beleive you quilt these on a regular machine, I try but get all cramped up, my hands, shoulders, plus no matter how much I baste, puckers.
