Bricks In the Round Motif

 Bricks in the Round Motif

Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

The name for this motif comes from the fact that the way the stitces are worked on the sides looks like brick work. This is a fairly easy motif to make and can be easily worked into a table runner, placemats, or any item that can be made from square thread motifs.
