Colorbrick Quilt

Well hello there blogosphere! It's been a very, very long time. Thanks to Pinterest and my Stay-Put Kitchen Towel Tutorial this neglected blog seems to have lived on with little care and feeding. The internet is a funny beast!

I went back to work full time in June 2011 and haven't found much time to sew since then. I love my job (technical communications, e.g. writing boring user manuals and drawing technical diagrams) but sometimes I miss my obsessive sewing days!

I was looking though some old pictures and found a few projects I never posted. The pictures are far from perfect, but here goes!

Last Christmas I gave my sister-in-law a Colorbrick Quilt. The design is perfect for showcasing fun fabric with large prints. I used Monaco by Monaluna, Mendocino by Heather Ross, and Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry.

I improvised the back with some larger pieces of Monaco. My mom was kind enough to sew the binding, which I believe is Kona Ash.

I have a few other projects to share, but in the interest of actually posting this, it will have to wait for another time.

Happy New Year sewing friends!
