Colorbrick...check!

It's been cold here (well, cold by Alabama standards anyway), so I've been perfectly happy to sit on the couch and sew bindings. (Let's be honest: I'm perfectly happy to sit on the couch and sew bindings in July too, but I digress.) I'm loving my finished Colorbrick (made from Rachel's quilt-along).

Finished Colorbrick
The fabrics are Meadowsweet, Del Hi, Katie Jump Rope, Full Moon Dots, Chocolate Lollipop, and probably a few others.

Colorbrick Biding

I followed Rachel's instructions and quilted in straight(ish) lines in the mortar to make a stair-step pattern.

The quilting shows up really well on the back. I went with a pieced back. I used some leftover blocks from the front and paid reference to the quilting by piecing them in a stair-step pattern. You like? I like. I know I've said it before...but this has to be my new favorite.

Two things:

Be sure to check out Tracey's new Quilt Hope In project. She's setting up an Etsy shop to support Heartline Ministries. I'll be helping out. Will you?
Quilt Hope In - Quilts for Haiti

AND...be sure to check back on Monday. It's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, and I'll be participating again. I think you'll like what I'm giving away...

Very cool back! I love how it turned out. And, from looking at the rest of your blog, you've been finishing a lot lately. Congrats! That abundance quilt is so pretty.

I love it! I started late in the quilt along, but have my top done (added some borders for extra length) and just got the yardage for the back. With a little luck (and that walking foot I just ordered on amazon) it'll be done in time for the husband for christmas!! :) I'm loving this pattern!
