Nickel Three

Here's the last of the Nickel Trio, Nickel Three
The design on this quilt was perfect for playing with different fills.
From left to right, simple bars, circles within circles, bars that alternate from left/right to top/bottom, and swirls.

And here, left to right, a rope border trying to use the rope tool a different way (which didn't turn out so great!), alternating circles in circles, and overlapping figure eights.

Here are some backing pictures
 The above picture also shows back and forth wiggles that are in V formations, and a row of hearts.
The design of this quilt was a lot of fun to experiment on, and I highly recommend piecing bars as a great way to practice!  It's also a great way to use up fabric!

Happy Quilting!


  1. quilting like this would also be great for one of those lasagna race quilts. You could do something different every row, or rotate 3-4 patterns. Great quilting idea!!

  2. Love the quilting on this one, Susan!!! How did you go around the corner with the rope tool? I have the tool also but I just can't figure out how to do the corner! How about a picture of that :) along with a description cuz this is one sweet quilt!

  3. Such a fun idea for quilting, Susan! I love all the different rows you've created. It looks like vintage Welsh quilting.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
