Fabric Fusion aka. My Nickel Quilt

Yesterday proved to be another productive day in both the calving and quilting front. A couple of newborns doing well and a chance to do some sewing. My husband even made supper!!
I was amazed how quickly and easily this pattern went together. I have a different pattern cut out and a couple of blocks done for our Block Party Guild Nickel Quilt challenge but did not like the direction it was going. I just loved how Jane Marcotte's turned out.

I like this one much better!! And I can't believe how well it went together since it was an unplanned pregnancy(the birth of a new quilt) by simply cutting up my scrap bin.

The only colors I pulled from the cuttings was my reds. They were a bit christmasy and I can use them in the next scrap fabric fusion.
I really have to thank my quilt group for allowing our 3rd Annual 2013 Retreat date to be changed. I am the one who has been planning it and do you think it would dawn on ME as to when it was planned for and work around it??

Heck no!! I go and book a cruise for the same time. Didn't phase me a bit till Terry Whitman found out and gave me the gears!! Thankfully we were able to push it back by two weeks and everyone was ok with doing that! They say they just did not want to take the planning over but I offered to still plan it even if I could not be there because of my own insanity! Thank you girls!! I appreciate your understanding...not sure why you let me keep planning things but thanks just that same!

So our retreat is February 1, 2 and 3, 2013 at Mother Theresa Center at Kenosee,Saskatchewan. My husband was quick to point out that it was our anniversary but I will be with him for 2 weeks before on the cruise.

I think I have it covered. Just remind me now and again.......



  1. I LOVE it!!! I need to do this pattern. Can I borrow the magazine?? Tell Arnold that there is a lot of time between now and your next anniversary!!! lol

    1. I quite like it,too. But then it is all my scraps I obviously could not part with no matter how small they were!! You can borrow the book. Just don't do it 'better' than mine!! Just kidding.... You will!


Thank you for reading and hope your enjoyed!!
