The scrappy, colorful bricks and stones quilt is a flimsy. This is such a quick quilt to make and as I said before, a pattern that is easy to math out for using different size bricks (rectangles) and stones (4-patches). This was completely out of that baggy of scraps - I didn't add a single thing to this. There was probably four 5" squares left over and they are going into the next project.
The next project is in progress. There was another baggy from the Guild Swap meeting that was filled with hand dyed fabrics. I am using the Temecula Quilt Co pattern called 'Little Letters' listed on their side bar - Free Patterns. I have enough of an extra wide backing cut-off for the background (use it up).
I've made this pattern a couple of times and it is very cute. There are some tiny cuts and you need to be precise with your 1/4" seam. I have found that most of the TQC patterns you need to use that scant 1/4" - just a note.
We went from a few days of warmer temps, but plummeted overnight. Snow is on the horizon, so I am running a few errands today freeing up a lot of stitching time when that bad stuff rolls in again.
