How Nickel Quilts Are Created –This trunk show is sure to get quilters fired up about using 5″ squares of fabric and many of the ideas can also be adapted for using other precuts; such as 2 1/2″ strips and layer cakes. I’ll show a great assortment of quilts from my collection and we focus on the blocks in the quilts and the simple components they are made from. Quilts for all skill levels will be shown. One of my favorite things to do is to design a quilt using simple piecing and have the result look like a much more intricate quilt! This is the lecture I recommend for my first virtual presentation with a guild, but of course you can choose whichever one you like.
