My Very Own Quilt!


I've finally done it! I made a quilt just for me!


In the last two years, I've made somewhere around 46 quilts. This is the first one I've made just for myself.
I love how it turned out. I think the colors are very rich, and still very fun.
I've used a mix of a lot of my favorite fabrics. It just makes me happy.
I of course put the super soft minky on the back. (A must have for a snuggle quilt.) I especially love how the quilting looks on the minky. I used a slightly variegated purple thread for the quilting.
I even added a label! I wish I had done this on all my quilts.
Can you tell I'm a little hooked on this bricks pattern? It really shows off some of the larger bold fabric prints, and it comes together so fast.
I'm already lovin' cuddling up on the couch with it!

Love it, you deserve this pretty one. I like the quilting on it to. Are you ready to quilt one for me. I'm just finishing one up.

Your quilt is stunning Allie, simple and beautiful, enriched by the gorgeous leaf and flower quilting. I have never used minky fabric before, sounds divine I must try it. Good on you for putting on a label, I'm not very disciplined in that area, but need to be! xo

First, I'm amazed at the number of quilts you've been able to complete. Congrats. And great that yo've finally made one for yourself.

Love the fabric choices here. Lots of Amy Butler, right? Beautiful project and result and a pleasure to browse.

Hey Allie,

I just recently finished a bricks pattern quilt inspired by the photo of yours. I used yellows and blues/whites to make a quilt for my sister for Christmas.

Merry Christmas!
