    These are what I have chosen for a quilt called stacked coins.
    This is the "first" actual quilt I am making.
    I have a brain injury and have only done sandwich quilts.
    I am trying to get brave and step outside of the box.
    What looks and is simple can be the most confusing
    and complicated thing ever.

    Go for it. It's wonderful that you feel up to thinking outside the box. Everyone here will help if you need a guiding hand.

    Dreamer, what a beautiful choice! I look forward to seeing it as you go along. I've never made stacked coins. I need to go look up the pattern!

    Thanks tons everyone !!
    Nancy, Kris told me about this and it has a free download at connecting threads. I think I can use the accuquilt to do most of the cuts.
    I wanted to get fabrics like the pattern showed;
    but did a real lousy job of choosing and had to empty cart and start with a group of manufacture matching and work backwards from there.
