Guild Sew In & Gyleen’s Bricks, Cobblestones, and Pebbles

I joined a group on Facebook led by Gyleen Fitzgerald called, Gyleen’s Bricks, Cobblestones, and Pebbles.  Each Monday, instructions will be posted for the next step of this quilt project.  it is a bit of a mystery as none of us know what the final quilt will look like.

The objective is to use up all the pre-cut squares and strips we have stored.  This is intended to be a very scrappy project.  The project uses 2.5″ strips, 2.5″ squares (gravel),  and 3.5″ squares (pebbles).  We have been told that we will also need a 6.5″ EZ angle.

Yesterday at the Modern Quilt Guild’s Sew-In, I finished step one.  Here it is…

I may have to make this project a few times to empty the totes of pre-cut squares and strips I have accumulated over the years.  🙂

This picture was taken by Barbara of me.  It looks like I am really concentrating on my piecing!  LOL

  1. wonder where this is headed if this is the first steps? I might have guessed a Twister as it looks similar but not with a EZ angle. Good that you had some sewing time at the sew-in to push this forward.

  2. Seeing this post, I joined the group. Unfortunately, I am late to the party and Gyleen has taken down clue 1.
    I have figured out from photos and comments made most of this clue, except for the sashing. In your photo is appears narrow or folded under, other photos it appears somewhat wider. Would you be willing to tell me how wide to cut the sashing? Not asking you to share all the instructions.
