Bricks and Blocks quilt along

I am so excited, I have written my first quilt pattern, and I am ready to share it with you. To do so, I am going to do a quilt along. This pattern is written for the beginner in mind, and when we are done with the quilt along, you will have a quilt ready for use. The first post will be on Wednesday, May 4th and we will spend 6 weeks on this quilt. Some of the steps won't take very long, but as we are all busy, I want to give you some time.

This will be the schedule:
May 4th, cutting
May 11th, sew block units together
May 18th, assemble the quilt top
May 25th quilt
June 1st quilt
June 8th bind.

There are 3 sizes you can choose from:
Crib, twin and queen.

In addition to the fabric you will need: an acrylic ruler (6"x24"), 45mm rotary cutter, rotary cutting mat, sewing machine, and thread.

  1. I hope to QAL. I want to use Mimi Mouse fabric I have in my scrap basket, hoping I have enough. They are large scraps. I have two Great Granddaughters, 2 and 3.
