Nickel Squares


These were taken at the Nickel Squares workshop I went to on Saturday. Lady holding the quilt is Pat Speth, Author of the Nickel Squares books and instructor, of course. She's holding a scrap quilt she made with leftover strips cut from 5 inch squares she used in another project. She sewed the strips together as leaders and enders!
The other picture is the one block I made at the workshop and some of the partial blocks I chain pieced -- my brain was too foggy from this miserable cold to do much of anything -- but I did enjoy the workshop. After all -- it was scrap overload -- everyone's quilt blocks were different! One quilter had been saving up red, white and black fabrics forever and decided to do her quilt with only those fabrics -- she had about 4 blocks done and they were fabulous -- wish I'd remembered to take a picture! Maybe I'll get a picture when she finishes the quilt.

Both of your star quilts are beautiful, I especially love the fall one. Fall colors just sing to me! You must have a very special friendship for your friend to have made and parted with that sunflower quilt. What a treasure!
