Nickel Argyle quilt

Nickel Argyle quilt

My Nickel Argyle quilt is my attempt at creating a masculine quilt.  I plan to have it quilted with straight lines using black thread to create the look of the traditional argyle sweaters and socks.  I once again used only fabrics from my fabric stash.  I chose red, brown and cream fabrics simply because I like the color combination.  I used varying shades of each color limited only by what I had available in my stash.

Only two different four patch blocks were used to make this quilt.  They were made from nickel squares and set on point.

On a different note, check out L&R Designs for a chance to win a copy of Jennifer Chiaverini's new book entitled "The Wedding Quilt".  You have until Nov. 27th to enter.
