Block Party

Well the quilt quest is going swimmingly. I have decided to forgo the traditional block type quilt and instead sew a baby sized coin stack quilt. There is a wonderful tutorial at the Moda bakeshop for this darling little coin stack quilt. I do not want to bite off more than I can chew so I am keeping my first quilt simple. To make my life even easier I'm using already cut charm packs of the Moda fabrics Swanky line. I LOVE this fabric it is modern, feminine and just a bit ritzy. I have completed 1/3 of the quilt top and am very pleased with the results. Alas, I left my camera cord at my Pops and am unable to post any work in progress pics. Teaching yourself to sew at 31 is quite an adventure, thankfully I'm armed with my seam ripper and plenty of wine......
