mini quilt in progess
This is a baby quilt for friends of mine who had a son a month ago already. I based it on the stacked coins quilt by Crazy Mom Quilts, but it's much smaller. I used 12 coins instead of 22 in a column, and 3 columns instead of 5. There's a pieced backing, too. Right now it measure about 28 x 31 inches, so it's quite small! I used all scraps and cut it, pieced the top and back and basted it in less than 4 hours. I got stalled when it came to the quilting part, though, because I want to free-motion quilt it and don't have the proper foot. I tried to get it at Joann's but no luck, so I guess I'll have to order it online. I made my binding already so as soon as I get the foot, I can quilt it, bind it and send it off to baby Julian.
