One of the Nickel Trio

Here's another finish from my piecing marathon
I'm calling this 'One of the Nickel Trio' because I made two more blue nickel quilts at the same time.  Well, actually I made three more, but Nickel Quad just doesn't sound as nice!  And technically, one was from a pattern that already had a name.  So, Trio it is.

This one was really simple to put together.  Four twenty-five patch blocks, and a lot four patches on the edges and through the centers, all separated with sashing.  Really an easy way to use up nickels squares.

For the quilting, I used an all over star and swirl pantograph pattern.
'Two of the Nickel Trio' is currently on the frame, and here's a sneak peek of the quilting in progress
I was quite inspired with the quilt design on this one, so it's getting custom quilting.  Still have a long way to go!

Happy Quilting!



  1. I love it and since I cut up a ton of fabrics into two inch square for some odd reason, I think I will make one of these.

  2. I really like your quilt! I too have a bunch of squares that need to be used up! Thanks for sharing!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
