Quilt For Lovers Bricks Fat Quarter Quilt The simple brick Quilt pattern is super cozy and without a doubt the perfect gift! It’s easy to sew, which makes it the perfect project for anyone learning patchwork … you won’t miss this opportunity to deepen your knowledge, will you ?!
This quilt can be made by everyone and for everyone!! Let your imagination flow and use and abuse the colors, it is an easy bedspread and you will be surprised and thrilled by the speed with which it will be sewn.
These are one of the best quilts, because children can drag them around the house, take them into the car and, otherwise, use and abuse them, and they support themselves very well. Not to mention that after washing they come out clean and even more cozy than before, a new bedspread always, is there anything better?!
It is supported on Minke and bound in satin. I wouldn’t use satin if I did it again, but live and learn.
FOR THIS QUILT YOU WILL NEED:
– 12 Fat Quarters
– 2 yards Snuggles
– 100% cotton batting
CUTTING GUIDE FOR THE FAT QUARTERS: To begin, cut your fat quarters into 6.5″ x 9.5″ blocks. You can get 4 blocks per fat quarter, use the cutting guide below for reference.
You will end up with 48 rectangles, you only need 45 for the quilt, save the extra for something else.
After you’ve cut out all of your pieces, you’re ready to begin sewing your pieces together by rows.
The rows are staggered which gives the quilt the look of bricks stacked up on a wall. One of the great things about sewing quilt blocks together this way is that it is super forgiving. If your seams aren’t matched up perfectly, it doesn’t’ matter.
Sew 9 rows of blocks. Each row has 5 blocks sewn together.
On the odd rows sew 5 blocks together along the short edges.
For the even rows, sew 4 blocks together, then cut your 5th block in half (so that it’s 6 1/2″ x 4 3/4″) and sew half to each end as shown in the diagram above.
TO ASSEMBLE THE QUILT TOP:
After you’ve sewn 9 rows, then sew your rows together. The blocks should be staggered like a brick wall.
Trim edges even if necessary. Make your quilt sandwich and machine quilt. For the quilting, use a walking foot and did a stitch in the ditch over each seam.
