Scrappy Brick Quilt

Tuesday, October 10, 2023

 Good morning!
I have another scrap-buster quilt
to share with you today.

It's a brick-style quilt.  Have you made one of those before?
It was my first time doing one and you can't 
get any easier than this pattern right here!

I was using up scraps leftover from my Kaleidoscope quilt
which you can see HERE.  I ended up cutting some more rectangles
from my stash and scraps to make it a little bigger though.  

I cut 3" x 9" for the main rectangles and 3" x 4-3/4" rectangles for the half-rectangles.
The finished size of this quilt is 43" x 53" but you could make it any size you want!
I think this size would be perfect for a baby, toddler, or lap quilt.

 Because my quilt top was wider than 40" (and you need extra backing fabric for longarm quilting) 
I decided to go with this 60" wide chambray fabric for the back.  It's called Robert Kaufman Chambray Union 5 Point Dot.  I didn't want to piece the back for such a small quilt so this was a great way to go.  I love the little design on it!

The labels are from Everemblem.
I get the 2" cotton, fold-over, sew-in labels.
If you go to their site, you'll have to pick a cotton label 
and customize it from there.  I've loved the ease of these labels.
Now I don't have an excuse to not label my quilts!

I love this gold and rust stripe fabric that I used
for the binding.  It's the Warp & Weft Moonglow Stitch Suede by

Jen Ostler in Highland, Utah quilted it for me.
The design she used is called Terracotta and I've used
it quite a few times.  I really like that panto for a
nice, basic, overall pattern.  Jen did a fantastic job as usual!

I love a super easy, fast, scrap-buster pattern, don't you?
I'm really happy with the way this turned out
and would definitely make this pattern again.
I hope this inspired you to use up some of your scraps.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy quilting!
