Labor Day Madness

Pat Speth's book, Nickel Quilts, was one of the very first quilt books in my collection.  I've had it for years and when the opportunity arose to take a class with her using designs from that book, I jumped at it! 
This is Labor Day Madness, tomorrow I'll show you Pinwheel.  Why do I tell you that now?  Well, these quilts have something in common...the units are made at the same time...left facing units are used in one quilt and the right facing units are used in the other!
I didn't particularly want 2 quilts made in the same fabrics, so I talked my friend Debbie into making the same quilts - and we traded units, so the quilt I show you tomorrow will have different fabrics!
Pat Speth Signed my label!!!
These are really fun quilts to make...if you haven't made any of Pat's designs before, I think you'll really love them!  I've now made 4 (and 3 of them used these combination units)!

  1. Beautiful quilt--how great you have a quilting friend to exchange/share fabrics

  2. Love it! I'm attending a Pat Speth workshop in February and this is one of the quilts I'm thinking of making. I took one a couple years ago and made Liberty Star...I love it too!

  4. Now Pat Speth is one that I will enjoy with you. I have been lucky being able to take a workshop with Pat. She's great. I have at least two of her books. Neat what we can do with a 5 inch square. Sandi

  5. Beautiful! Isn't it fun when a workshop becomes available that we can REALLY enjoy!!! Visiting as part of the 2015 FAL Cheerleading Team. Thanks for participating!
