Tilda Brick Quilt Number Two

Possibly one of the most loved quilts in our house is the brick quilt I made back HERE, however, I can not tell you how many disputes there have been over who gets to snuggle under it!  I therefore decided many months ago, in order to maintain peace and harmony within the family, to make another.

Using a mix of pretty Tilda fabrics and following THIS METHOD, I pieced the top together way back in October last year and then I ashamed to say,  it sat in my sewing room waiting patiently for me to finish it.  After yet another squabble, I finally picked it up again a few weeks ago, sandwiched it, quilted it, stitched the binding and then before you could say 'Jack Robinson' it was swiftly nabbed for snuggling duties! With the Easter holidays over and having restored a little order, I thought it was about time it had it's photo taken.......


The fabrics in the main were from the Tilda collections Happiness is Homemade and Tiny Treasures, with a few of my favourites thrown in for good measure!  For the binding, which did of course have to be stripy, I used Kitchen Stripe Blue.  I backed it using Sally Brown, I LOVE this fabric (I had to join two lengths together as it wasn't quite wide enough)... but an alternative choice where a join would not be necessary would have been one of our wider Stof Ginghams or Stripes or this pretty polka dot by Gutermann.



I can honestly say, this is such a fun quilt to make and speaking from my own personal experience is perfect as a beginners project!  If you would like to have a go at making one and would like to use the same fabrics as me, Mum and I have put together a limited number of quilt top packs on the website HERE.  In addition to this you'll need to add your choice of binding fabric, backing fabric and wadding (if you were wondering, I used this one).  Don't forget you can find my 'How I made my original Brick Quilt' blog post HERE and there are also some handy step by step instructions for the different stages of quilt making on my Quilt Along blog page HERE.


Thank you as always for visiting and happy stitching!

  4. This is gorgeous and exactly what I am looking at for my daughters room! What are the finished dimensions? I would need it to be big enough to cover a full sized bed.
