This long weekend I'm making a cow-themed quilt for my cow-obsessed husband, after last winter he confessed to being jealous of my lap quilt. :3

So far I've finished the cutting and layout, which is inspired by this brick quilt from Tallgrass Prairie Studio. I spent ages umming and ahhing over the layout, making sure there was a good distribution of colour and pattern. I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this!


  1. I am obsessed with this quilt! Could I ask what the dimensions of the quilt is and your brick sizes, I'm going to make something similar for my son who loves Star Wars with that theme in mind. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Hi Laurie, I'm so pleased you like it! The bricks are 3.5" x 8.5" including the usual 1/4" seam allowance, so the finished size is about 52" x 51", which is a good lap size quilt.

      There's some awesome Star Wars fabric out at the moment. Please send me progress photos, I'd love to see them!
