This is the quilt I brought along with me to sleep under on my Michigan trip. It is not a Nickel Quilt (a quilt made using 5″ squares), I made this years ago for my daughter Roxie and somehow it ended up back at my house. Roxie went through a Troll phase when she was very young and on one of my annual trips to Paducah, Hobby Lobby had all this Troll fabric on sale. I remember calling Roxie while I was in the store and asking her if she would like a quilt with troll fabric in it. That was the start of the miscommunication on this quilt. Roxie assumed since I normally use 150 + fabrics in the quilts I make that she would be getting a quilt with a few pieces of troll fabric in it. It’s all troll fabric!
I utilized techniques from the One Block Wonders book and the method I used on my Twist and Shout Quilt. I had so much fun working on this and seeing the fun designs emerging.
When making this troll quilt and my Twist and Shout quilt the blocks are created when two rows are sewn together, that way there are no Y seams or set in seams. This is my Twist and Shout quilt and yes it is a Nickel Quilt, a quilt made using 5″ squares.
Both of these are fun quilts to make and I always love the way a black background sets off the fabrics!
