i like it a lot!  your pics are good but leave some curiosities about technique: did you use reverse applique?  are the letterings hand-embroidered? 

(these might be silly questions, because i am still really bad at sewing.)

It's actually individually cut bits of fabric sewn together in traditional quilting style.  I'll post a few other photos later on today that actually show it's a blanket.  And I did the embroidery with my Janome Machine.  I found a pink floyd font and digitized the lettering and let the machine do the rest Smiley  I tried to fit the bricks so that it looked like they are actually part of the wall rather than just randomly sewn into it Smiley

Okay, thi sis fricking awesome! Where ever did you find brick fabric?

It's from Marcus Brothers fabrics, I found it a few years back and bought the entire bolt I know there is another fabric designer that has a brick pattern too but I can't remember who it is, though I know the bricks in that one are larger scale. 

The wizard of oz fabric line (follow the yellow brick road) has a solid brick pattern out on the market too.

Great Job! When I first looked at it I thought you decorated your wall LOL. You should put that it is a quilt above the pic or something because a lot of people just scroll the pictures. I love it. It is so well done I thought it was real.
