Delicious Bricks

March 29, 2010

Last week I mentioned that I was going to put something together using Doodle Bricks from Waltzing with Bears. This is another great pattern that has lots of versatility, and is easy to put together for first-time quilters. I wanted to use the purple fabric in the shop, from Heidi Pridemore’s Simply Delicious collection for Blank. With mouthwatering names like popsicle, boysenberry, grape and ambrosia, this quilt top is yummy!

I played with the pattern and made 14 rows of bricks (pattern suggests 12 or 16), but 14 worked well because I was using 7 different prints (instead of the recommended 8). Still, there’s lots of fabric left to make a scrappy binding from the purples. I’m trying to track down some jumbo rick-rack to trim the sides of this quilt as the pattern shows. Backing will probably be another Minkee, this time lilac & turquoise.

I have this quilt kitted in purple as shown, or in Bubblegum Basics for a more traditional look. I’m planning next week’s quilt around this fabulous print from Annette Tatum’s Little House collection:

Fleur Lilac by Annette Tatum

More on that next Monday!

    I just came back from the AQS Show in Lancaster, PA – fabulous! Saw lots of rickrack, including quite large sizes, so you should be able to find it.
