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.

Happy quilting!

Made up the cushion using jeans belonging to my parents. It went together like a dream -- perfect pattern pieces, perfect directions! I look forward to sewing up the quilt! Thank you for a lovely design!!

This was a great pattern, easy to use and to sew. The included tips were super helpful and I'm happy to have made a dent in the pile of jeans I've been saving! I made the 85" quilt and 2 pillow cases. I left holes/worn spots on purpose and I plan on patching them with sashiko stitching.

This is amazing. I haven't sewed it together yet, but the pattern is very large and easy to use. Great instructions included. The only problem I had was finding Levi's that were large enough for the largest piece. I finally gave up and bought demin at Joann's. I can't wait to sew it together and finish it up. Thank you so much!

This pattern and directions are put together very well and easy to follow. The digital download was ready as soon as I submitted the order. I loved having the ability to print the pattern to fit the dimensions I needed. I have admired this quilt top for a long time and finally decided I needed the pattern...I wish I had done so earlier!! Thank you for helping me achieve a beautiful quilt and recycle jeans at the same time!!
