    measuring 3.5 x 6.5? My sister (first time quilter) wanted to make Bonnie Hunt's (quiltville.com) Bricks and Stepping Stones, http://www.quiltville.com/bricksandstones.shtml she cut the fabric to the above mentioned size and decided that she really did not have a desire to quilt. I was gifted with the fabric.

    I would like to make a quilt for her with the fabric. Any ideas? I am not a fan of bricks and stones.

    Thanks,
    JulieM

    lay them out by color and make a gadiation quilt. if you have ehough of every color. and see where it takes you. or you can just start sewing them together. and see what happens.

    Go with what you have. You can make new blocks, 4 patch, cut and make log cabins, 9 patch, unequal 4 & 9 patch, courthouse steps, pull out a quilt book and randomly pick something, sew colors together and then cut them into new blocks. It's too bad we don't live close as I love to make new blocks. We could spend the day and try to fit in some sewing. :lol: :lol: I sent you a PM

    Coin or Chinese coin quilts work up beautifully...

    I did memory lap quilts with bricks... They are quick and easy and there is no seams to match. Love it for a quick easy quilt for a gift.
