March's 2011 UFO Challenge #2

Stacked coins from a jelly roll I won a couple years ago. It's Spring Magic by April Cornell.
Each coin is 2"x5" finished. There are 35 coins in each stack. The sashing and borders are also 5" finished. There are 6 coin stacks. The finished quilt is approximately 65"x80" before washing. This is a Quilter's Only solid. I think it's called Honeydew, but I'm not sure. :/ Can you see my organic line quilting? Also a first for me. I did three lines in each coin and did not quilt on the seams. I did not continue the lines from edge to edge, but left the borders free. I then just quilted around the border with three lines to sort of frame it. I LOVE how it turned out.
I may not be the only one who feels that way. :)

Wow, it is beuatiful! And I LOVE the line quilting! Looks like it is already in use - what more can you ask for?

Very pretty. I just made two baby stacked coin quilts. Looks like someone already loves it.

That's a very beautiful quilt. I love the fabrics in that line. I have a few charm packs waiting for just the right project. Oh, and the time to do it, too!
