If you’re like me, you’re hard pressed to part with even the smallest pieces of fabric. Every scrap reminds you of a quilt you made and each quilt certainly was special. The Big Book of Nickel Quilts will help you get those scraps out of their baskets and closets and into beautiful quilts that you will enjoy for years to come. Pat Speth and Charlene Thode provide wonderful patterns for 40– yes 40!– nickel quilts that consist of simplified cutting instructions specifically for 5 inch squares or scraps of fabric from your stash. The thing I really like about this book is not only the diversity of patterns, but the fact that they give you easy instructions for making each quilt in lap, twin, and queen sizes, taking the guesswork out of the equation! Now you just have to round up your favorite fabrics and start sewing!
Until next time,
