June Book of the Month

I can't believe it's June 1st, and time for another Book of the Month!  This time, I've selected two books, Nickel Quilts and More Nickel Quilts, both by Pat Speth.


A few years ago, a retiring quilter sold me a lot of her stash, and was so happy her fabric was going to someone who would use it, that she gave me this under bed box full of 5" squares!  

Two years ago, I pulled out the reds and yellows, and made this,


from Spectacular Scraps, by Judy Hooworth and Margaret Rolfe.

And since then, the bin has sat in the closet, and the books on the shelf, both calling to me!  So, that's the goal this month--use up some of those nickels, and check out those books!

Now to decide which one!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Just found your blog from the homequilting group on yahoo. Love that you are brave enough to attempt to do one quilt per month per block! I love how your 5in sqs are stacked. Also picked up on the fact that you have a sewing table project underway and I am anxious to see the results. I also followed you on Pinterest, my other addiction!
