Bricks and Stones PDF Instructions to print
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.

I like this one, Mary. It is on my list, for sure. With all the great nephews lately, someone will love this quilt…….and soon, too.
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.
How will you quilt this quilt? I am getting better with my long arm machine but am never sure how to quilt it.
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.
