100 Quilts in 100 days: Chinese Coin Stack, finished

It is quilted and finished with a scrappy binding.  I had forgotten how fun it is to make a baby quilt.  It had been a couple years.    
I quilted it with diagonal lines, two inches apart.  My seam guide attachment worked perfectly for that, and it was very quick.  I think it is a good look for this contemporary quilt.   
I put a strip of coin stack in the back, too.  I love the back just as much as the front.  
Cousin Hannah and her family was visiting last week, and Kai enjoyed a joyous reunion.  It had been a year since we moved away from them in San Diego, but the two still remembered how much they love each other.

Hi again! I just saw your question on my blog about how I did Luke's quilt 3-D, thought about making a tutorial, but googled one instead. It's here:

Except I used 3 1/2 inch squares instead of 2 1/2 inch squares (I imagine you could do almost any size), and 4 white with 1 colored. Kind of a fun thing to try - have fun!

Has it really been a year since you moved? It seems like yesterday. The quilt is beautiful.
