Nickel Flower quilt

My Nickel Flower quilt is another quilt made entirely of fabrics from my stash.  Woohoo! It has 35 flower blocks.  Each block uses 4 nickel (5") squares and each fabric used in the flowers has a circular theme-polkadots, swirls or circles.  I used a bright color theme and made the background on each flower block contrast with the fabric used in the flower.  I used the same yellow fabric in each of the flower's centers.  This was a quick, easy quilt that was fun to work on. 

I pieced the backing using fabrics that followed the theme of the quilt.  I had 3-1 yard pieces of fabric to work with and decided on this arrangement.  I used the leftover backing to make the binding and matched up the binding and the backing when sewing on the binding to make the binding look scrappy like I have shown on previous posts.  It's a great way to use the long strips left after trimming your quilt after it's been quilted.

The quilting design is a custom pattern by Linda of L&R Designs.  Check out her web site's new look!
