My nephew was christened on the weekend and by some miracle (pardon the pun), the quilt I had started for him actually got finished in time.
It was a stacked coin affair (the quilt, not the christening), and guess what? ALL the fabrics were found in my stash! This is a fact that the Mr does not find so startling. I guess he was thinking of the overflowing shelves of fabric as he stared at me with that stunned, "what-the-hell-are-you-talking-about-I-thought-that-was-the-whole-point" face.
Anyway the quilt ...
And the back
Now if there's one thing I've learned from making this quilt it's that stacked "coins" (still don't get why they're called that), and a bit of white sashing make for a very satisfying and quite speedy quilt. Oh and one more thing I've learned is that I need to do a machine quilting class, STAT!

p.s. I seem to have missed out on my first Bloggy Birthday! It was back at the end of February but I guess I was so busy packing that I completely forgot about it. Anyway watch this space because I'm amassing a few bits and pieces to do a "better-late-than-never" first birthday giveaway!
