Lullaby Bricks Quilt

Hi everyone, are you getting some wonderful sunshine in your part of the world?


It's exam season in my house at the moment, so of course the sun will be shining!!


Two days a week I teach in a local Quilting shop.  Despite being surrounded by tempting fabric and patterns every week, I usually manage to restrain myself!!


However one day, my eye caught the sweetest Jelly roll and I caved!



This is 'Lullaby' by Kate and Birdie.  It has the softest palette of coral, aqua and taupe and the sweetest prints of cute animals, birds, sprigs and stars.


I decided to design a quilt around the jelly roll and pitch it to British Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  They loved the idea, and 'Lullaby Bricks Quilt' it is now in print in the June issue.



There was just the right amount of graduating 'bricks' from the palest neutrals through taupe and aqua to the coral centre.

I went for a crisp 'white on white' for the skinny sashing, making sure the low volume prints could still hold their own in the design.

I quilted in organic wavy lines running across the width of the quilt and through the bricks, just to give some gentle movement and contrast to the structured, geometric design.


And for the back, I kept the pale theme using 'Tiny Houndstooth' by Michael Miller and bound with one of the pale 'Lullaby' prints.



This generous single bed quilt finishes at 63" x 68", perfect for lulling you into the land of nod!
