Because my quilts are scrappy and made from stash, fabric yardage calculations for most of my quilt instructions are not ¬†available and when included, they are estimates only –¬†click here for more information. I am unable to resize quilts to meet individual needs, I get too many requests and I’m too busy quilting!

I made my version in yellows and browns – the finished top on the design wall.

    Forgot to say – Press all seams in each row the same way, alternating between rows. Press Row 1 to left. Press Row 2 to right, etc. This makes joining corners between rows easier and neater.

    Love this pattern! I simplied it (for me anyway)and made quicker by eliminating some seams and sewing in rows instead of blocks. Less time matching seams and less thread tails to cut. Instead of 35 blocks, you have 21 rows [repeat of 7 x 3].

    I cut 6-1/2″ bricks throughout except for the 3-1/2″ white squares and 7 ea. blue and red 3-1/2″ squares. Chain sewed each group of seven identical rows, then joined one row from each set in one long seam. To handle easier, I sewed rows in groups of 7, then joined the three groups.

    Cut is 105 3-1/2″ white squares, 7 each 3-1/2″ red and blue squares; 49 each red and blue bricks 3-1/2″ x 6-1/2″.

    Less matching of seams, less thread tails to cut. It’s not scrappy but still very attractive for 3 fabrics. Hope this makes sense.

    Yellow and brown, RWB, scrappy, doesn’t matter. This is a very nice pattern, Mary. You did good : )

  • Bobbi in Alabama:

    Thank you once again for another free pattern. And it is a great one. I like that the pieces are cut from 3.5″ strips because I would think it would go together fairly quick. Love the borders. I can see this in a lot of color combos.

  • Lori:

    Thanks Mary. Sure to appreciate all you do!

  • pat bailey:

    thank u so very much. a beginning quilter and some too difficult but this one looks ok.

  • Mary, you are so generous with your patterns. In RWB this will make a great QOV, but I can see it many other colors. Thank you!

  • Cynthia:

    Thanks Mary!

  • Rebecca in Maine:

    Thanks, Mary, for providing this. Takes all the work out of it for me. You’re doing great sorting fabric and things. I probably would have started cutting a new quilt (or 2 or 3) before now.
