Woohoo! It's finished!
Introducing Nickel Bricks, a pattern from my Book of the Month selection, Perfect Quilts from Precut Fabrics.
Perfect for using up nickels (5" squares), which, by the way, I still have ton of. But can't blame a girl for trying!
Measuring in at 62" x 89", mine was made without the piano key borders,
because I have something else in mind for all those leftover pieces. Just need to make sure the idea works.
Here's a full on view, showing all the pretty bright prints.
Can't believe how much black it used. I had a 4-5 yard piece in the stash, and now I'm down to a little over a yard. But still, worth it!
Quilting was done with a bright orange Glide thread,
and the panto called Paperchase. There's so much going on with all of those prints, no need for a detailed quilting design. Isn't that face print awesome - one of my favorites!
And can't forget the back.
A year ago, I wasn't a big fan of pieced backs. But I've come around, realizing it's a great way to use up fabric that I really would have no idea what to do with. So from now on, you'll see more pieced backs from me.
Have an overflowing amount of fabric? Then do look into this book. And don't think precuts are absolutely necessary - that stash can always be cut!
Have a wonderful day quilting!
