Blissful stepping stones

I finished putting together my Blissful Stepping Stones quilt top. It is made from part of a layer cake from the Bliss line. I loved the pinks and greens.

This quilt is lap sized and used 14 of the fabrics. The pattern called for putting a 2.5" sashing on all 4 sides of 12 layer cake blocks. I mixed in a couple more, so I actually have some blocks left to use on the back too or maybe for a matching pillow.

Once you put the sashing on, then all of the blocks are cut into equal quarters. That gives you a smaller block with a colored square and background on 2 sides. There are a lot of different ways to turn them to make different patterns. But I chose a stepping stones variation.

Now I need to find some backing and get it quilted.
