Brick Quilt 1 Finished
And yet another finished quilt, originally mentioned here.
I have to say I'm rather proud (or maybe it's just surprised) of myself for getting these quilts done. R. is, like a typical two week old, quite needing of attention and, frankly, I'd much rather indulge him than sew any day. So the sewing gets done in little spurts ... but it is getting done, slowly and steadily.
Maybe someday I'll even sew some Christmas gifts (or not, given that Christmas is in less than two weeks). There are a few things in this book I'd like to make, but time may not be on my side right now (especially considering I don't have the book yet!).
I wasn't sure when I started this quilt if I was going to border it or not and I'm so glad I did. Most of the time a border just adds so much to a quilt.
The quilt is quilted with spirally swirls, sort of picking up a pattern in one of the fabrics in the top (the orange, green, gold, brown striped fabric). It was a super easy way to quilt it and turned out nicely.
The backing is a coordinating striped fabric with a row of bricks.
