I just finished up two great days with the Faithful Circle Quilters Guild in Downers Grove, Illinois. I presented my Fabulous Nickel Borders lecture for their guild and at show and tell I was treated with seeing one of my designs made by a guild member. This is Four Patch Plaid and is found in Nickel Quilts or The Big Book of Nickel Quilts. I love the very scrappiness of this quilt!
The workshop they selected was my Picket Fence Units workshop in which five different quilts can be worked on all in the same workshop!
These three different sets of blocks are all for the Pinwheel on Parade quilt. The fabric choices were; Christmas prints, pastels for a baby quilt, and batiks. Pinwheels on Parade is from More Nickel Quilt book as well as The Big Book of Nickel Quilts.
Below are some Woodland Clover blocks. The first set is very much like what I made for my quilt and the second block is a good example of controlling the fabrics more within one block.
In this workshop I did find a kindred spirit, a quilter using plaids from Upcycled 100% cotton shirts!
As always, I am looking forward to seeing some finished quilts from this workshop!
