After I finished organizing everything downstairs, I decided I’d sew a little. These little 3 yard quilts are so fast to cut and piece that before I knew it, the top was done! This one is called Brick Street and it’s from the Fast and Fun 3 Yard Quilt book. I left the last 1 inch finished border off and will bind it in a black fabric from stash. Since the design wall has the log cabin blocks on it, I just draped it across the ironing board.

These black and yellow prints are SO pretty!


  1. Might have to look for this book. I do a lot of strip pie quilts for kids and like that pattern but other Brick Street one is really calling to me!

  2. Hi Mary, this is a lovely quilt design and the fabric you picked is just perfect. Thank you for introducing me to Fabric Cafe 3-yard quilts. I had never heard on them until you posted the picture of the Town Square 3-Yard quilt a few days ago. I went to their Etsy shop where she has her downloadable books and I’ve bought two of them. I love the simplicity of the whole quilt making process and that she explains how to make twin size and queen/king size using the same pattern. I’m in the process of looking through my stash to make my first quilt, I love that you only need to find three different fabrics to make a quilt. Hugs, Jen

  3. Oh – I love this one. I think I have that pattern too and will need to look. The idea of working on 3-yard quilts is a good one as there are so many fun patterns out there for them.

  4. A larger version of this would be perfect for my leftover animal print batik fabrics. Of course I’d have to buy more fabric for the sashing!
