I am still on my plan to make more boy’s themed quilts for our charity quilt goal with the quilt club. I found this really cute Winnie the Pooh fabric, but it is directional. The print has a fairly large repeat, so bigger pieces will show off this print better than cutting small ones.
I decided to use the Stacked Bricks pattern, and use the Pooh print for the 7 inch squares. I made a nine-patch with five-inch squares in colors that went with the print. Then I did the cuts, turning the upper left and lower right.
Next, I sewed the two top pieces together, and the two bottom ones together. The sewn pieces were offset to allow the Pooh squares to be added.
Continue sewing in rows, and press toward the Pooh print.
Here is one brick done.
I began making rows of bricks, being careful to keep the Pooh print right side up.
I had four bricks stacked, and decided I could do eight to make a larger quilt for an older child.
So I made more bricks.
This made a nicely sized quilt.
A matching green border was added, and then it was loaded up for quilting.
I used a cloud pantograph for this one, echoing the clouds in the print.
I had several pictures of the quilting, but it is actually easier to see on the back.
Binding is the same green print. Some of you may remember this print from the Elizabeth House quilts, and I am happy that I have used the last of it between this quilt and the next one.
All done and just needs a label and it will be ready to deliver.
I am a bit ahead of schedule, as the kid quilts are due in November. So, next month I’ll show you another quilt with the same directional print, but used in a non-directional way. I have put this Stacked Bricks pattern in my Craftsy store for free. I am hoping if you like that one, you’ll consider buying my Amazing Value Play which gives you two complete sets of instructions for two different quilts from the same pattern. The Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt pattern is now available on Craftsy, too. Just click on the Craftsy link, or on the sidebar to see my store.
