Cobblestones Quilt

cobblestonesbwcopy

I got the new issue of Quilt Magazine yesterday. The is a quilt called Cobblestones. It is made with hexagons. And sewed together in strips. I really like this quilt but don’t want to sew hexagons together. I am a little lazy in that reguard.  So I was looking at it and thought I could break it down into squares. So I got my grid paper out drew up a scale of it. These are tweleve inches blocks using squares and HST’s. So this would be king sized. 100 inches squares. You could make it smaller. Which I think I will attempt a small one. Maybe using 2 1/2 inch sqaures and 2 7/8 HST’s.  Make a lap quilt or baby quilt.

  1. Holly,

    I really like that. To me it almost looks like stain glass window panes.

  2. I don’t have the magazine picture in front of me but couldn’t you also do snowball blocks with a sashing? Just a simpler suggestion. I’m so impressed and you have inspired me to also look at quilts in magazines differently. I sometimes just skip thru a quilt I like but think it’s too hard.

  3. Sounds like you are in for a challenge, but it will be beautiful. I admire that you can see things differently.

  4. Oooohhhhh, that is very interesting idea using squares and half squares.
