    This is another coin quilt I made for a co-worker's baby. I used two charm packs of Happy (great name for a great collection!) I wanted to do something in the sashing that I didn't have to quilt, so I used one of the decorative stitches on my machine. While it's not perfect, I'm pretty pleased with the result. I just love the way quilts look after you wash them!

    That is really neat. I'm supposed to was the quilt when it's done before giving it?? I've only made 2 and they were for my kids so I didn't was them until after they got them dirty.

    I love the cheeriness of this quilt. Your decorative stitch is so pretty. My machine is just a plain Jane, and I am so envious of these type of stitches

    Harmony what size is your baby quilt. It is so pretty and I would like to make one in a lap size or couch throw and was just trying to figur out how many I would need for that

    This quilt is 41x50. I got the pattern from Moda Bake Shop. Here's the link:

    I recently made another coin quilt from a jelly roll that was more of a lap sized quilt. I found it in a jelly roll book. If you're interested, I'll send you the dimensions:

    You did a great job! Love the name Happy and so appropriate because it does make you happy to look at it. :D
    Don't you just love those decorative stitches?! Thanks for sharing with us.
