My precut July quilt is assembled – that was quick!

I gave you all the wrong information on this quilt. First, I called it the Stop and Go quilt … that is incorrect – it’s called Walk and Stop. Second, I said I bought the kits from Craftsy but they were both bought from Connecting Threads. Mom pieced the batik one I showed yesterday and now the black and bright top is done too. I did exchange the solid black in the kit for a print from stash. I feel like a solid black picks up and shows lint really bad so I rarely if ever use it for a background.

The kits are no longer available at Connecting Threads and it’s been several years since I bought the two I got but I will definitely be using this pattern again – just 2 yards of a background fabric (2.5 yards if you’re going to bind it in the background fabric) and scraps or fat quarters from stash and it makes a quick and easy quilt. Mine will go back to Florida for quilting and eventually be donated.


  1. Now, I really love it even more with this name. I applied to be a school crossing guard job as a post retirement, not quite ready to quit working thing. I guess it just moved up my “wannamake” list. 🙂

  2. love this quilt pattern and your quilts – added it to my ‘Go to quilts folder’. Just heard the news that Florida has topped the news for 10,000 cases of COVID-19 in one day – up there with New York. Please stay at Big Canoe for as long as you can. Stay safe and well Mary.

  3. The slightly patterned black fabric almost makes the bright colors look like they’re floating. And Finn is still the cutest doggo in the world.

  4. Yes, the quilt really stands out and shines! All those pretty solids are just beautiful.
