Nickel Quilts - Five Inch is a Cinch
Thursday, October 5, 2017
Pat has been quilting since 1988. She started working with 5 inch squares as a basis for her quiltmaking in 1993 after attending a quilt retreat. She was asked to do a program for her guild in 1997 using the 5" squares, which gave her the push to explore new uses and techniques for working with the squares. Pat, while working a full time job, started on the book, Nickel Quilts in 1998 and was able to have it ready for the publishers in June 2001.
