The quilt list

Remember my Summer Sewing list? Cross number one off the list! This weekend I pieced this super easy Easy Bricks Quilt from Moda Bake Shop. I used "My Happy Garden" fabric and added lots of additional aqua blues and citron green fabrics.I also changed up the size of the bricks a little. Mine finish at 3" x 6". Since I wasn't using the layer cakes called for in the pattern I was able to cut 6 1/2" strips of my prints and 3 1/2" strips of the white solid. I sewed the strips together and subcut 3 1/2" segments to make the blocks.
It really has a fresh Summery look to it!
Today I started pulling fabrics for the "Swoon" pattern by Thimbleblossoms. It seems lately everything I make has aqua in it, so I was determined to do something different. I pulled pieces in reds, pinks, grays and blacks. It was looking pretty good, but then I decided it might be kinda cool to have one turquoise block. I tried :)

  4. Cindy, your bricks quilt is so pretty! I love it! I think it's healthy that you recognize your aqua issues (hee hee!). Your fabric choices are great...I want to shop from your stash!
