    I just finished this Stacked Coins quilt yesterday, I am braving the waters and free motion quilting on my home machine. This quilt is a quilt for my couch, it is bigger than a lap quilt but not quite a twin sized.

    I made the quilt using Kansas Trouble fabrics

    Your quilt is terrific, I love the pattern. I am trying to get over my fear of FMQ. If mine could look like yours I would be thrilled.

    Thanks, the free motion quilting is not 100% consistent as sometimes my stitches are bigger than in other areas but I had fun, this is only my 3rd time quilting free motion, I usually send the quilts out but that is getting pricey and since we now care for my mother in law I needed to start doing some of this myself

    Oooohhhhh...that is lovely! Great pattern to use all those fabrics in. And a big BRAVO for working on your machine quilting. (I am still working on being that brave!) that would be a great pattern for any type of scrap quilt. Your quilting looks fatastic too!

    I really like your quilt! I've seen so many of that pattern done with the newer, brighter prints and it's never really done much for me but I love it with your choice of fabrics!!! Heading to my quilting cave to start my fabric collecting to make one of my own. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Thanks, I actually started with a Kansas Troubles jelly roll, it was not the full 42 fabrics it ended up being two pieces of 21 fabrics.

    I cut the fabrics into 5" sections and then sewed them together into long rows. Next time I will just sew all of the jelly roll strips together and then cut them into the 5 inch section pieces (lesson learned) it would of probably gone alot faster.

    One technique I did with this one is I alternated directions for sewing my pieces together so I would not get bowing or shifting and I could really tell a difference in how straight the rows were.
