When I studied textile design, my favourite part was the screen printing. I got to design and print a range of fabric samples that I then decided to turn into a quilt. I had such limited amounts of each print so I wanted to make the most of them – no seams and minimal cutting. ‘Skimming Stones’ is the result. The original Skimming Stones quilt was shown at Quiltcon in 2019.

If you're keen to see one come together, there's make-along on my Facebook page so you can see additional photographs of each of the stages – Facebook @stitchandyarndotcom

The pattern is made up of 16 large background blocks with four rounded corner shapes appliquéd to each. You can choose to appliqué the shapes using a raw edge method or needle turn, depending on your preference. It's a quilt that looks equally good using solids, or large, bold patterns.

It also includes instructions for three different sizes – twin/single bed, throw and cot/crib.

The Skimming Stones Quilt pattern is available to download automatically as a pdf after your payment is processed.

Included in the instructions are suggestions for back and binding, along with detailed diagrams for cutting and piecing your quilt.

A percentage of profit from every pattern sold goes to women makers in disadvantaged communities.

Happy quilting!

Fun pattern! I am an experienced seamstress, but new to quilting. The directions appear easy to follow. I have not yet had a chance to make it but looking forward to doing so.
