pink bricks {a finished quilt}

My Pink Bricks quilt saga has come to an end. The quilt is finished, I'm happy with the way it turned out, I can stop obsessing. That is, of course, until I start a new quilt and start obsessing all over again :)

Somehow, I kept changing my mind again and again as I was making this quilt. First it was the pattern, then I decided to add some white to the mix of fabrics which required another rearranging. And, to make the whole process much more "interesting", I made the quilt top way too large. It was huge!

See my attempt at making my design wall larger to make it all fit? That itself should have been a red flag since I did not need a huge quilt. So I removed a few rows and columns (after they were all pieced together, of course) and finally ended up with the quilt I wanted, phew!!!!

I then used luxuriously soft pink minky for the backing. I have to say, it makes for such a wonderfully cuddly quilt. Even my son, who otherwise refuses to touch anything pink, loves wrapping himself in it.

I did straight line quilting about 1/4" along both sides of each seam. Simple, yet effective for this kind of quilt, I think.

Finished size of the quilt is 55" x  63" which makes for a nice lap sized quilt.

Hope you all have a very lovely weekend. Svetlana
