Nickel Double Four Patch quilt

My Nickel Double Four Patch quilt uses more of the four patch blocks that I made back on Memorial Day weekend.  Another quilt made entirely from my stash!

This time I combined the four patch blocks with squares of green fabric and cream fabric and then alternated the blocks throughout the quilt.  I seem to have alot of green fabric so I decided to see what would happen if I kept all the dark squares the same.  I'm happy with the outcome and very happy to be using some green fabric.  Here's what the blocks look like.

 I pieced four different green fabrics together to make the backing creating another four patch and using more green fabric.  The scrappy binding was made from scraps of fabric left over from the backing.

Linda came up with a fun quilting design for this quilt. She used a cream thread throughout which works perfectly.


  1. i like how the chains pop out on this quilt

  2. I would like permission to use your pattern to make quilt kits for our Charity quilt committee. I will include a link to your blog with every pattern. This is something even our newest members will be able to do! Thank you, Sue Seeley

    1. Yes, you may use this idea. I can't reply to you directly because I don't have your email address.
