Stacked Coins Baby Quilt

I made this quilt using Funny Babies from Moda. It measures about 50 x 55 or so depending on sashing and border sizes.

It goes together quickly and quilts easily and quickly too.

You will need:

1 charm pack, cut in half into 2.5 x 5 inch rectangles, you will need 80 rectangles

Sashing, cut into 2.5 inch strips, length of fabric, 4 strips

Border, cut into 5 inch strips, you may have to piece to achieve correct length.

Binding, 2.25 inch, enough to bind entire quilt.

Piece 2.5 x 5 inch rectangles, long sides together, into 5 columns, using 1/4 inch seams, press.

Sew 2.5 inch sashing pieces between columns, press.

Sew top 5 inch border, press, then sew side borders, press.

Layer quilt top with cotton batting and backing fabric, baste in place, then quilt as desired. I quilted 1/4 inch on both sides of each sashing and column. Then quilted a box inside each column, 1/4 inch from neighboring quilted lines.

Down each sashing I used my machines wavy line stitch, and also used that in the border.

Bind.
