Quick Quilt?

I'm making a quilt for Geordie's mom for Christmas, but the one I wanted to make is too complex to finish in time.  So, I'm making her a Coin Quilt, using 12 fat quarters, a pretty olivey green for the sashing and borders and... erm, a sheet from IKEA as the backing.  I'm hoping to piece the backing at least a little.

I'll be doing straight quilting - probably in the ditch - because I'm hurrying, but also because my (beloved) machine is old and can't do free-motion quilting at all.

I'm going to take pictures of the whole process and post them!

For now, I'll leave you with this picture: Buttercat, clearly saying, "What do you mean, 'in the way'?"
