May Quilter's Calendar

Well, of course I wish this was my quilt.....but it isn't!  Here's the scoop - Mary Canterbury says she cut the bricks 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" and the white spacers 2 1/2" square.  Make as many as your size requires....Mary used 7 bricks per row for this child's quilt.  Start with a brick, then a spacer, etc on the first row then start with a spacer, then add the brick, etc on the second row.  Use this alternate pattern until your desired length  is reached.   This pattern would also work beautifully with 6 1/2" x 3 1/2" bricks and 3 1/2" square spacers for a larger quilt...don't you think?  I love the green dot Mary is auditioning for the back of her quilt.
