You'll Love this Easy Quilt Pattern

Here's a lively quilt block from Forum Hostess Colene, aka Robicole2.

Choose bright geometric fabrics, dots, stripes, tone on tones and small prints. The block examples on page 3 and page 4 are made with a tone-on-tone for either fabric #1 or fabric #2, and a print for the other fabric in the block. Refer to the quilt block diagrams on page 2 for assembly schematics.

One of our community members wrote to suggest using fabric noodles for this quilt block. What a great idea -- thank you Sally!

Cobblestone Quilt Blocks

Each cobblestone measures 6 1/2" X 6 1/2" unfinished (before sewing to neighbors)

  • Fabric 1: cut one 2-1/2" X 2-1/2" square

  • Fabric 2: cut two 2-1/2" X 2-1/2" square,
  • and cut two 2-1/2" X 6-1/2" rectangles

Brick Quilt Blocks

Each cobblestone measures 6-1/2" X 12-1/2" unfinished (before sewing to neighbors)

  • Fabric 1: cut one 2-1/2" X 8-1/2" rectangle

  • Fabric 2: cut two 2-1/2" X 2-1/2" squares
  • and cut two 2-1/2" X 12-1/2" rectangles

Remember to use two different fabrics per block if you want to make a quilt like the one in the photo above. For example, if you choose a tone-on-tone for Fabric 1, choose a bright print for Fabric 2.
