Finished Bricks Quilt

Ok, I can’t believe I spaced out and never posted this finished quilt!

I finished this quilt back in June (!?!?) and sent it off to its new owner.

I based the pattern on the Pezzy Brick Road tutorial on Moda Bake Shop, but I changed pretty much all of the measurements for chunkier bricks, wider frames, and skinnier sashing. Though there is a pezzy print in there!

I ended up really loving this baby quilt. When I first began with the color palette I had some doubts, but as it came together it looked fantastic!

I went the black and white binding route. I love the way it frames mulit-color quilts without emphasizing any one color.

Lizzy House red pearl bracelets made for a gorgeous backing (and a serious itch for every. single. pearl bracelet. color.), and I used a rather large all-over stipple for the quilting.

And now on to my multitude of basted quilts sitting next to my machine!!
