Bricks and Squares

I am quilting today – and can’t wait to get to it. I also am trying to document all of the charity / comfort and donation quilt patterns that our quilting group has done over the past few years. I belong to a group called the Slap Happy Quilters, and our focus is to provide comfort quilts to patients at the Alamance Regional Cancer Center.

We made this Bricks and Squares quilt in 2004. It finishes at about 48 x 60 inches which is just perfect for comfort quilts.

I believe that when we made it, we used 5 inch squares. However, I have modified this to fit the dies for my Accuquilt GO. Thus, the pattern has been adjusted for a finished 6 inch block and the 3 x 6 inch finished bricks. The dies themselves are 6 1/2″ square and 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ bricks.I also added a second variation. There are more ways to turn these blocks for different quilts, so try them out and see what you can do.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Thank you for your lovely quilt patterns. I am always looking for an effective, easy quilt pattern to use in the quilts I make for charity.

  2. I posted a picture of a Patience Corner quilt one of the girls in my church quilting group made on the AccuQuilt facebook page after I quilted it. It turned out great, looks complicated but is so easy. Thanks again for your patterns.
