Bricklayer & Baby Bricks Quilting patternA few years ago I designed a quilt called ‘Bricklayer’. I made it out of ‘brick’ reds, browns, and creams, and the design reminded me of the brick home I grew up in, hence it’s name. It was a great masculine quilt. It’s sometimes hard to find quilt patterns for men. I made kits and sold patterns, but I never marketed it much as I always had in the back of my mind that this would be really cute in a smaller version for a baby quilt as well.

The original Bricklayer quilt done in tans, reds, and browns. What a great masculine quilt.

While I normally gravitate towards ‘cool’ colors such as blues and purples, one day I started pulling pinks, oranges and yellows from my stash.

I’m not usually drawn to bright hot colors like yellow and orange, but I really liked this combination.

I thought these would make a really cute quilt for a little girl, and decided my ‘Bricklayer’ pattern would be a perfect use of these. That’s how I came up with my ‘Baby Bricks’ baby quilt pattern.

I re-wrote the pattern to include BOTH sizes, and made a sample in the brighter colors that a toddler would love.

It requires just two dies, B & H from the Mix and Match Set. (If you need both the cutter AND the mix & match set, you can get a better deal here.) But you can also cut this using just a rotary cutter and ruler. The choice is yours!

Of course, if you prefer softer colors, this pattern would look great in those also. Here’s a version done in pastels.

Once the top was pieced, I quilted it using my new pantograph pattern, “Ebb & Flow”. Did you know I am now designing pantograph patterns for Digi-Tech Designs? You can read more about that here.

I’m IN LOVE with this baby quilt!

Isn’t the texture this design gives to the quilt just AH. MAHZ. ING?! I used Quilter’s Dream Wool batting, which really makes the design POP!
