My Brick quilt was made using various coloured fabric strips cut at 5"
(I had aimed to have a finished quilt of 42" x 68" but am not sure if that was what I ended up with).
Make 11 rows
3 coloured rectangles measuring 5" by 10.5"
1 coloured rectangle measuring 5" x 6.5"
3 black rectangles measuring 2.5" x 5"
To get the brick effect (and not have to worry about matching seams) I alternated each row by either starting or ending the row with a 6.5" rectangle.
Each of the 11 rows has a black 2.5" x 42" strip separating it from the next one and I also put a black strip at the top so the top and bottom have a black strip.......I had originally thought of putting a black border on each long side to frame the quilt, but unless I cut down the size of the bricks the quilt would have ended up wider than the recommended AHQ specifications.
(I cut 12 strips of black fabric 2.5" wide)
Great quilt Claire! Let me know when you have your next pattern ready to go please.
And that goes for anyone else. If you can send me a photo of your finished quilt and simple. clear instruction how to make it - with extra pictures if you like, I would love to feature your quilt as well.
