Here's a "stacked coins" quilt I made for my friend as a wedding gift.  It's a queen sized quilt, and I did made some small (16x16) matching pillows.  The stacks actually go vertically on the bed, but it was photographed sideways (whoops).  The backing is a darker blue with one stack going horizontally, so it has a more "manly" side if her husband should like to flip it.  I know my quilting lines aren't perfect, but that's what makes it homemade Smiley

I like it. I think both sides could be considered 'manly sides' but its nice you have a coin on the back of the quilt as well.  Are those pillows made to match the quilt sitting on top?  Awesome and thoughtful!

Yup, the pillows are sitting at the top of the photos.  They're also kinda reversible with the light blue on one side, and the navy on the opposite.  I just made accent pillows as I didn't have enough scraps for shams.  Oops.

Thanks for all the compliments.  The fabrics were from my favorite local fabric shop (www.elmwoodvillagefabrics.com).  The owner and I lay out all the possible combinations and come up with a plan.  She's a great help!

I really like this one.  I love blue, so that much of it just makes my heart incredibly happy.  It looks great.

Beautiful quilt, and I absolutely love your quote about learning to sew in suture class. Smiley
