"Stacked Coin Baby Quilt" Progress

    I have wanted to learn how to quilt for awhile, it was this nagging thing in the back of my mind. I learn everything online, I wasnt blessed with my granny across town who could show me how to do this or that. Ive had to learn through tutorials, blogs, and even an instructional DVD that came with my sewing machine.  Ive learned everything I know (which is very limited) in the past 6-8 months, because people were sweet enough to put what they know in their Blogs. Thats why im doing mine, I want to pay back what others have so genorously given me. I know there are other people out there who want to learn but have no one to teach them.
   Thats exactly what I was waiting on, thats why I took so long to figure out how to quilt. Unlike all the other stuff I learned, I didnt think I could learn this by reading and seeing pictures on a screen. I wanted someone to teach me, badly. Finally I decided I would teach myself the same way I did with the other stuff, and I have  (so far) all thanks to "Moda Bake Shop" and the sites they showed.

   So here is what I have done so far. I only have the front done , and im going to have a shop here in town quilt some  designs into it. The back is going to be pink "minky" fabric and the binding is going to be pink with jumbo white polkadots.

   Its for my husband and I's friends who are getting ready to have a baby girl.  They did so very much for us when we had our little one.  They drove over to be with us when I was in labor at the hospital and had just found out that our Brother-in-law, who had a 3 week old had just tragically died.  They made signs, that read "Welcome Home Emrey", and set up our house with gifts and cupcakes for when we arrived home with our new little baby. I just love that family so much and wanted to give them something special so that they can hopefully feel how much we love them! So for their little one, they get my first quilt. :)

   Its not perfect by anymeans but I did it with love. I am beyond excited about this thing. No matter how intimidated by a project you are, give it a go anyways. You will be surprised by how much you can do that you once  just knew you couldnt!  I promise.
