Summer Fair 2011: Brick Quilt

Design: Based off Rachel's colorbrick quilt-a-long
Fabric: Various aqua/red prints from Just Wing it by Momo and other stash
Quilted: Machine quilted in the ditch
Completed: March 2011

I made this quilt for my sister's friend who had her first child. I thought this was a perfect quilt for a baby because it is so simple and cheerful. I chose to go with a simple stitch in the ditch style of quilting so it would emphasize the brick pattern on the back...and I adore how it came out. In fact the back might just be my favorite part.

I am linking this up to the gen x quilters summer quilt show.

What a gorgeous creation! I just love aqua & red, and I like how you arranged the different values. The back is definitely cool.

how on earth do you piece the back like that & get it all lined up? I'm a fairly new quilter and haven't found good instructions about how to do this. Any help would be greatly apperciated.
