Sticks & Stones
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but quilting will never hurt me… unless I poke myself with a needle or something.
All jokes aside, this sticks and stones quilt is painless to stitch up: it looks super intricate, but it’s nothing more than some strips with some cornerstones, hence the name.
Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company is back at it again with this tutorial. With a few simple tips and tricks, you’ll have this quilt done in a flash– just in time to give as a gift!
If you want to make this beauty for yourself, here’s what you’re gonna need:
For her quilt, Jenny uses entirely jewel tones and a white to finish the top. As for your materials, you can obviously change the color scheme to match your taste.
All of your cornerstones are going to be the same size, and in Jenny’s case, the same color, too. As for the strips, she uses 5 different colors to achieve her desired effect.
From here, it’s all about sizing and stitching. Use 6 cornerstones per block, along with 5 strips per side, making 10 strips per block.
2 of the strips will be the size of the cornerstone, and from there, each pair will increase in size by the size of one cornerstone. You can check out Jenny’s video for more details.
