Bricks and Stones

 

This quilt was made with the following Accuquilt GO dies: 3.5×6.5 rectangle, the 5 inch circle, the chisel, and the 3.5 inch half square triangle .

I designed the quilt in the Touch Draw app on my iPad when I was traveling. I don’t have any fabric estimates because it’s a scrappy quilt that I intended to use a large fat quarter pack to make. In the end, I had more fabric than needed so I added an extra row to the width and length. Since my goal in quilting is to work with what I have, I frequently design this way and fit the size of the quilt to the fabrics I have. When working scrappy from stash there are no limits but when working with a set of coordinated fat quarters like this, I start making blocks and see how far I can go with it.

The orginal quilt is set 8 x 10 blocks ( including the border blocks) and is 48×60

Blocks are 6 inches finished ( 6.5 with seam allowances)

My final quilt size after adding a row to the width and length making it 9 x 11 blocks (including the border blocks) was 54 x 66 inches.

    Mary, thanks for the instructions! I’m guessing you cut the circles at about 5″? This is really cute, and looks like it was fun to put together. I especially like the way you put on the border.

    I really like this one. I especially like the look of the border. I have a chisel die that I haven’t used yet. Looks like I will now. Thanks for a great quilt.

    I had not seen this one, Mary. At least I don’t remember it. LOL I like this and I’m sharing it with one of my Facebook quilting groups if you don’t mind. We have a lot of new quilters that may like this pattern.
