Gail's Lug Nuts

This awesome version of Lug Nuts was made by Gail.  Gail was a student in a workshop I taught in January.   I loved the rich neutral fabrics that she had selected, and was very curious as to how her choice of one brick red fabric would look in the final product.   (Lug Nuts uses nine different fabrics and we normally suggest 3 lights, 3 mediums and 3 darks.)  I think end result is awesome!


Gail prefers a light touch with the quilting and chose one of my newer pantographs called "Expression".  Gail chose to do the optional pieced back to use up some of the leftover hexagon sections.

I just love how the landscape brick fabric look in the quilt!

Lug Nuts is a great stash buster if you have 1 m cuts lying around.  It is also a pattern that is much easier to construct than the final product would suggest.  No y-seams!   Pattern is available in the Highway 10 Designs Etsy Store, or ask your local quilt store about it.

  1. The fabrics are great, and lovely quilting. It must be a huge delight to quilt one of your own designs.
