This quilt came together very fast. Eight Fat Quarters returned home with our family from Maui in 2010. These were purchased in the “Mall” not far from the airport on Maui. The family could look through the mall while I took my time finding the perfect fabric. These fabrics all have a gold metallic accent on them. The pattern is from the April 2012 “American Quilting and Patchwork”—Sticks & Bricks. The magazine has a queen size pattern. The website has a juvenile size pattern in a different colorway. My version measures somewhere between the two sizes. Construction was easy
by sewing the small background spacer fabric to the “Sticks”. Layout was so much easier when these small pieces were already sewn together. The 1 background piece was sewn onto all the “sticks” then set aside 1 of each fabric and finished sewing the remainder of the background fabrics on. Layout happened on the floor.
Patches & Pinwheels”. Our quilts look so different but are all the same construction, color placement is the only difference.
Tomorrow is sewing day with a friend. I am looking forward to working on some borders and piecing backs together. I hope I can send some tops off to the quilters.
