If you are a regular RPQ reader this blog post and quilt top may well leave you with a sense of déjà vu. This quilt design is a repeat from a previous quilt - Strips and Bricks Quilt I June 2009, Strips and Bricks Quilt II July 2010, and Strips and Bricks Baby Quilt 2013. The design is based on a pattern by Malka Dubrawsky and was originally featured in Sew Hip Magazine in 2009, and has since been published as a pdf pattern (available from Malka's Etsy Store). For all quilts I have however made block size adjustments to cater for a specified finished quilt size.
This quilt is a custom order for a soft neutral baby (girl) quilt with a subtle pop of color, and it is very much all about the fabrics. I love the mix of neutral and low volume fabrics contrasted with stronger colors as well as the variation in large scale feature fabrics and smaller scale prints. The fabrics are from stash and features snippets from many collections, including the latest range by Australian design team Umbrella Prints (the Mini Flowers Collection) as well as by Lotta Jansdotter (from the Echo and Bella Collections).
Several of the fabrics that I have used for this quilt top are older (from early collections by Kaffe Fassett and Amy Butler - classic designs - which are now hard to find), one or two prints are unique hand screen printed pieces including the dark blue scroll design (pictured directly above), but many are from more recent modern fabric collection. Anything goes.
The quilt top measures 45.5 inches x 60 inches;
