Brick & Stepping Stones

I was looking for something to do for my leaders/enders and thought I'd work on the 4-patches for Bonnie Hunter's Bricks & Stepping Stones quilt.  I accidentally started  making them from my 1.5" strips.  When I realized what I had done I decided to just do the bricks out of 2.5" strips.  This means that I need a lot more block units.

I'm trying not to use too many of any one fabric so I wanted lay them out but I don't have space to lay them in my sewing room.  I decided to use the  living room.  Thought you'd get a kick out of where I put them so the cats can't mess with them!

I have finally put the blocks together to make a little throw.  I still need to get a couple borders on it, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

For now, this cute little throw is going to go on my soon to be created UFO list.


  1. I made one of this pattern from my mother in law's cotton blouses. She was very busty so there was lots of fabric to work with. I really like how you improvised. I too saved fabric for retirement. It will take two lifetimes for me to use this all up!!

  2. This is one of my favorite patterns of Bonnie's. I love how yours has turned out! The colors play so nicely together. Great job!
