Hipster brickwall quilt

20161030_162954

I’d been stashing a group of fabrics for a while, with the vague idea of making some sort of hipster ish quilt. They’re mostly fabrics from spoonflower, some from Spotlight and a couple from patchwork shops. One sunny weekend morning I found this tutorial on pinterest and decided to try it out with the fabrics I’d already grouped together.

This was a really fun quilt to piece, quick and easy with the large ‘bricks’ and it was fun trying to decide which ones to put on the ends and cut in half. I used a white on white island fabric from Vonnya’s in Raro for a wide border, and used navy blue on the binding to set the colours off. The backing was a delightfully soft drill sort of fabric from Spotlight.

This quilt went to Anna’s sister and her fiance for Christmas and I’m happy to say they liked it.
