Cherry Pie and a Picnic for Two

I finished the Oh Cherry Oh Stacked Coin Quilt last night!  I think it turned out great.  If you remember, I followed the directions from the Moda Bake Shop, however I altered the pattern a bit so the quilt would be big enough for 2 people to have a picnic.  I ended up using about 3-1/2 charm packs.

I decided to make the back of the quilt red so it won’t show dirt as easily when put in the grass.  I stitched in the ditched along all the seams and the binding is a tiny cherry print.  The final size on this one is 46″ by 65″.  I hope my mother-in-law likes it!

Stacked Coin Top

I just finished the top of the Oh Cherry Oh stacked coin quilt.  I think it looks pretty good!  I’m hoping to finish the back tonight and sandwich it up tomorrow.  This is a gift for my mother in law and I have a firm weekend deadline!  I think it’s the perfect size for a picnic for two.

Coin Stacks

I’m making progress on my stacked coin quilt for my mother-in-law’s birthday.  I decided to follow the pattern on the Moda Bake Shop website, but I’m enlarging it to 32 coins high and 6 columns, rather than 5.  I’m hoping it will be a good size for a picnic blanket for two people.  Since I changed my mind on the size after I started, I had to order more charm packs.  Hopefully they get here soon so I can keep working!  I need to be done by the 14th – 10 days!

This is also my participation in the 2009 Coin Quilt Piece-Along.
