Quilty Stitches Block #3

Rolling Stone


Block #3 in our Quilty Stitches Sampler is the Rolling Stone block.  You’ve probably seen this quilt block popping up in a variety of places.  I knew it had become a popular block, but I didn’t realize exactly how popular until I started poking around a little bit.  You will find Rolling Stone quilt blocks or a variation of one in all of the following patterns:

Fig Tree Quilts “Wheels” Pattern (Scroll Down)

Thimbleblossoms “Puddling Jumping” Pattern

Cluck Cluck Sew “Spin Cycle” Pattern

Red Pepper Quilts “Labrynth” Pattern

And this is just a brief list of some of the places this block has been showing up lately.  If you feel like you’ve been seeing it around a lot–you probably have! =)

  • Ooh! I can’t wait to get started, thanks so much!

  • Thanks so much for this stitch along. I just started on block one and am loving an excuse to cross stitch again.

  • The cross stitch blocks look so cute. I will be watching the progress.
