Also known as 2-1/2 x 4-1/2. I just cut and cut and cut. I guess that's why it's called Fishes and Loaves. You never run out of pieces, no matter how hard you try! You can lay the blocks out in so many different ways and no 2 quilts look the same. You can make the quilts any size you want. Good use of scraps. I've machine quilted and I've tied. Children and grown-ups alike love these quilts. They look at all the different fabrics and always can pick out something that reminds them of something else. It's cool to see their eyes light up.

Someone else recently posted a picture of a quilt made with this pattern.  I had never heard of it.  I like how yours turned out.

Lovely array of colors. My mind went to the Bible story when seeing the quilt name.

Hi Greenacreslabs! There really isn't a pattern. I learned to make this at my quilt group in Phoenix. I will look thru my notes and post it on my blog when I find it. So keep watching my blog! The reason it's called Fishes and Loaves is you keep cutting 2 sizes and the pieces keep multiplying or so it seems. I never seem to be able to use them all up! So I cut more to make another quilt.

You can now find the Fishes and Loaves pattern on my blog. Thanks for asking. I'm always willing to share when I'm able. Have fun with it!
