Scrappy Stepping Stones

I thought I'd do a follow-up of my latest quilt!


I found a photo of a scrappy quilt on Pinterest that 

sparked my interest, which lead me here.

But as there were no measurements, I worked out 

my own.


Maybe you'd like to make a Scrappy Stepping Stones 

quilt of your own....

I started with 2.5" squares,

making fifty 16-patch blocks...



I cut 49 white pieces from 1.3 metres of white, 

tone-on-tone fabric

and you need another 8 side pieces, of 4 squares 

each.

This will make a quilt that measures 68" by 72"

I may still put a white border around the outside....?


If you have any further questions please don't 

hesitate to add a comment to this blogpost!


Happy sewing!

You know me, I just love this quilt. Thanks for the measurements. I know I'll be using my die-cutter for these patches.

Marlene said...

Love this quilt. Will definitely add it to the list of must do's-plenty of scraps here.

Isn't it great that you know so much about quiltmaking that you can look at a picture and figure out how to make it without buying a pattern? You did a great job with the math, and with your scraps. I think I will always love scrappy quilts no matter what style they're made in. Would you believe that I've recently used so many scraps that I don't have many left?! Seems sort of self-defeating to cut yardage into scraps, doesn't it? Need to make "regular" quilts so I have more scraps!

Yes, that idea might help getting rid of my packed tin of two-inch blocks. Great idea!

Marie said...

I've seen this one on Pinterest too and have plans to make it down the road so your dimensions save me some work - thanks! It is so pretty. How could it not be with all of those wonderful scraps?

This is probably a really great scrap buster, and much more interesting than a quilt made of simply squares. Does it have an intended home and do you have quilting ideas?

This is so colorful and a well-placed scrappy pattern! Love it... I am new to quilting and just happened upon your quilt.

I saw the same picture on Pinterest and made the quilt, adding a border. It certainly used up my scraps. I wish I'd come upon your post earlier as I had to do the math myself.
