I finished my scrappy quilt the other day and it was a good feeling to cross it off my list as well as being happy with the results...As I've mentioned so many times, I'm not a good piecer so something like this is more of a challenge to me....On close look, you'll see seams that don't line up but the overall effect is bright and happy and that pleases me.
Each unit is made up of one long strip (black or white) and one small 4 patch.
There are 14 units across the top and 6 units going down for a total of 84 units.
You will need:
42 black with white print strips - 7 1/2" x 3 1/2"
42 white with black print strips - 7 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Small 4 patch - 336 2" squares - should have pairs of color
We cut a lot more than was needed to give us lots of choices - what was left over will get used probably by our "resident piecer" - Kate who is faster than the other 3 of us put together.
I recently found out that this scrappy quilt is a pattern designed by Bonnie Hunter - the name of the pattern is Bricks and Stepping Stones. It's a great pattern Bonnie and I know a number of people who have enjoyed making it. To see more of Bonnie's scrap quilts, click here.
Our 2014 retreat is coming up soon and we're busy looking for some fun and easy quilts we might like to do...Can't wait!
Til next time.....Judy
