completed stacked coins quilt

My friends baby shower is this morning and I was able to get her baby quilt finished up on Thursday.  I love how it turned out.
To me it has a modern look to it--very different from the quilts I usually make.  Mom and dad aren't finding out the baby's gender and the nursery is gray and yellow.  The gray polka dot fabrics are all Michael Miller (Dumb Dot Haze, Quarter Dot Gray, and Stone Ta Dot).  I had trouble finding a pale yellow polka dot--everything looked like a school bus--so I bought that at JoAnn's.  The quilt washed up beautifully even with the mix of designer/JoAnn's fabric.  The sashing is maybe Kona snow?  I get my white Konas mixed up as I usually can't tell the difference.
The back is Kona coal (my absolute favorite Kona) and I added a contrasting strip across the back to make it more interesting.  I quilted it with randomly-spaced parallel lines that are 60 degree angles from the sides of the quilt.

And my first quilt label using this p.s. i quilt tutorial.

I used crazymomquilts tutorial but ended up using one less "coin" in each row so I could use the width of fabric for the sashing strips.  I hope my friend loves it as much as I do.
