You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon - you can choose green hues to your taste,
  • scraps of "earth" colored fabrics - from sandy to brown - for the bricks,
  • 1 fat quarter of light gray fabric for the mortar,
  • green fabric for the binding (choose it to match the embroidery),
  • cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • rotary cutter,
  • iron,
  • #12 universal needle,
  • #12-#14 quilting needle.
Cutting:
Out of the fabric for the bricks, cut 35 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" each, and 14 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Out of gray fabric, cut 13 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 16 1/2", and 35 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
The quilt consists of 2 repeating strips: the first strip has threee 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" bricks alternating with 1" x 2 1/2" "cement" strips. You will need 7 such strips.

The second strip starts with a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square, then two 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" bricks follow, and the strip ends with a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square. All brick pieces alternate with cement 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" pieces. You will need 7 such strips.

Before you start sewing, lay out all your strips and arrange the colors to your liking. Then sew the top together strip by strip.

Embroidery:
Mark the position of the embroidery on the top. If you have a printer and embroidery software, print-outs of the designs can be helpful. If you do not, you can cut out rectangles of the same size as the designs and arrange them on the fabric to determine the position of the embroidery.

Stabilize the chosen area. Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the designs one by one.
Quilting and Finishing
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all layers together.

We quilted in a free-motion style all over the quilt.
