Cobblestone Quilt

Just looking at this quilt makes me want to pull out my scraps and start sewing!  They are so satisfying.  I started this quilt this past summer, and didn't stop until it was finished (the quilt top anyway)...which rarely happens.  
 This was a freebie pattern that came in the mail from one of the quilting magazines, trying to get me to subscribe.  I've tried to find it online, but haven't had success.  It's made up of 4.5" x 2.5" rectangles and 2.5" squares, sewn together into a 6.5" x 2.5" rectangle.  I then sewed 3 of them together to get a 6.5" block.  Super simple to cut out and sew together (no triangles!).  I used color for the rectangles and low volume for the squares.  It helps give the eye a place to rest in this quilt.
 I quilted in 8's or S's, and used the squares as my guides. 

 I tried a dozen or so bindings out on this, and ended up going with a classic black and white.  Works so well on scrappy quilts.
Finished size: I forgot to measure before I sent it to it's new owner.
Pattern:  See method above
Fabric: front-scraps ● back- Fantasia (Art Gallery Fabric) ● binding- Timeless Treasures
Batting:  Warm and White

  3. I love this kind of scrappy quilt. There are so many fabrics to look at. You can cuddle up and just stare at the quilt for hours. The pattern is simple and very doable for anyone. A great stash buster too.

I love, love, LOVE the black and white binding - it is just perfect to set off all the colors. Thank you for sharing, and I'll link to your website! Quilt on!
