A Few Good Stepping Stones

New Stepping Stones Blocks – August 2015

Using leaders and enders I made a few more Stepping Stones blocks. They are looking really awesome, I think. I love the way the red and blue really create distinct secondary designs. This was a little hard to see in my previous quilt. From far away the previous quilt looks great, but close up you can’t see the pattern as well as you can in this turquoise and red version.

I have added a few new fabrics to the mix for this quilt. My original idea of using all Bonnie and Camille fabrics is pretty much out the window. They were a good starting place, but much too limiting. With all the fabrics I have added, I still don’t think there are enough. I get annoyed when I see two fabrics together.  I am starting to see the appeal of charm quilts.

The picture to the right is the new blocks with a few of the old ones to show you the effect of the whole design.

  1. I love it! It’s like a scrappy quilt, but with organization of color. I agree, the way the blues and reds play off each other is great. So much fun and very cheery. Can’t wait to see the finished piece! You have such a great eye for color.
