Stacked Coins Baby Quilt - WIP

The baby quilt pin basted.  I had to be extra careful when preparing the pieced backing.  There is a strip of cut charms that needed to be aligned with the quilt top.  Also I barely managed to fit the polyester batting.  At the top sides, there is hardly an inch of room!

I've simply machine quilted it in the ditch. The batting is a locally made polyester batting with high loft very cheap compared to those imported from the States.  I do not like it and it will not be suitable for doll quilts or heirloom quilts.  But since this is a baby quilt i.e. for a real baby and not just in size, it will benefit from the puffiness the batting created.

That's the binding all ready to be cut into strips.  It's Kona Solid - Cardinal.  There's enough batting left for this quilt of which I will try tie quilting.  Keeping it simple :)
