So, a while ago I decided to make a quilt, I decided to use the Amy Butler Brick Path pattern because it's pretty simple, right?
Anyway, that's where the logic ended. I decided to change the pattern by adding smaller cream rectangles between each 'brick'. This made the quilt HUGE, it covers my double bed easily. I only read afterwards that if you're trying your first quilt you should do something small!
So, a lot of cutting out, sewing together, ironing, more sewing, quilting (on my tiny machine) and binding it. The binding was awful! It took a whole day and made me completely miserable! I didn't want to hand sew it, because I suck at hand sewing and I hate it. But I ended up having to do quite a lot anyway.
Anyway, I love it so much. It's so cozy and just beautiful! I used mainly floral patterns, all from my mum's loft and they're mainly cotton. The back is a cotton/polyester blend white sheet, I didn't take a picture because I figured you all know what a white sheet looks like. It's just quilted in straight (ish) lines every second row of 'bricks'.
On my bed:
Covering the whole floor of my living room:
And a couple of my favourite sections, I love the mix of all the retro prints! So pretty!
Thank you so much for all your beautiful and inspirational quilts! Mine is super simple and messy compared to all the ones I've seen on here, but without them I wouldn't have made this, so thanks!
