I"ve had several email me wanting the easy brick quilt pattern. It is super easy. I was inspired by some quilts I saw on Pinterest and made up the pattern. I am happy to share it. Shoot me a picture of your finished quilt if you make it! You can email me via the Connect tab on the first page of the website.
4” x 8” Brick Throw Size Quilt (finished quilt is 40”x52”)
Sewing machine, needles, scissors, rotary cutter, cutting mat, at least a 8 ½” quilting ruler, thread, seam ripper (all the normal quilt making supplies)
Fabric (for top only):
¾ yard of white or background
~2 yards of assorted colored/printed scraps in pieces at least 4.5” by 8.5” (see suggestions below)
About 3 yards
About ½ yard for 2” finished binding
Cut 19 pieces of white 4.5” by 8.5”
Cut 40 assorted colored or printed scraps 4.5” by 8.5”
Cut 4 pieces of white 4.5” by 4.5”
Cut 8 pieces of assorted colored or printed scraps 4.5” by 4.5”
Sew together in horizontal rows placing the white as shown in the picture.
I’d recommend using at least 10 different fabrics for the colored blocks. You can use scraps, layer cakes (10” squares), fat quarters, or fat eighths. A fat eighth will make (4) 4.5” X 8.5” blocks. If you don’t have scraps and want to use fat eighths for the colored fabric, get at least 11. Some quilt shops will cut fat quarters or fat eighths for customers.
