My friend recently added a baby girl to her brood of boys, so I figured something girly was in order.
I made this quilt using Kate Spain's Verna.
The pattern is AmandaJean's Stacked Coins Quilt for Moda Bake Shop.
For the back I used the Verna Clover Earth fabric.
Here's a close-up of the quilting. Meg shared her excellent idea of quilting straight lines in the sashing and doing a diamond pattern in the coins.
My walking foot is bedeviled (so is my rotary cutter...what is up with my quilting tools???), so I used my regular presser foot. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. Things turned out better when I quilted the straight lines first and then went back and did the diamonds. (When I did the diamonds first and then the straight lines, it led to some puckering.)
The binding is Verna Sewing Seeds in Apricot. They look like little starfish.
I love this fabric! A lot! The pattern is really fun and simple too.
Note to self: Buy a new walking foot, stat!
