Red Pepper quilt

Last year as I hopped around to different blogs I kept bumping into a really cute quilt called "Bricks and Stones" from Red Pepper quilts. The more I saw it the more I liked it. So I skipped on over to Red Pepper's Etsy and purchased a pattern. Sounds easy enough right? Well here's the thing for some reason I thought the pattern was for a full size quilt and the picture I kept seeing was only a fourth of the quilt -- don't know why I thought this it was just in my head. So when I printed the pattern to my surprise it was for a quilt that was 43" square. This is a picture on the pattern.
It's cute but I kept seeing a full size. So I decided to make 4 quilts and put them together to make one quilt that would fit my bed. This is how it turned out.

I made the white border a 1/2" larger then the pattern called for and the piano key border I made it 3" larger. So the finished size of the quilt is 98" square. (just in case you're wondering the postage stamp center is 1,122 -- 2" squares.) All of the fabric came for my scrap boxes (except the white I had to buy a few yards)

This is how it looks on my bed. I'm liking this quilt I call it "My Red Pepper quilt"

Hope you have a great day. :o}

THIS is my kind of quilt. I remember the pattern and love how you made it into a 'full' quilt. Just beautiful.

I also keep running into this pattern and think it's adorable, I had no idea that it was 1/4 of the quilt. I love the version that you made. It's beautiful!
