A 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.
Today I finished up quilting a T-shirt quilt, with the pantograph “Square Spiral”. I love this pattern for adding texture to quilts, and it works well on masculine quilts too.
I also started a new piecing project. I’m working on a new pattern – I actually designed this one a few years ago, and published it as a lap quilt. But I’ve always wanted to offer it as a baby quilt as well.
