Bricks and Mortar Quilt Finished.

I finished sewing the label the Bricks and Mortar quilt this weekend. Not bad for a quick 2 week quilt. My only thought is that I wish I made it a bit bigger now.




I like the back especially. I have always used the same fabric for backing, but this fabric is just too pretty so I peiced together some strips. I'm not letting the girls eat their afternoon tea snacks under this one for awhile! Its my quilt. :)

Editied to add, the final size is 96 x 134 cms or 38 x 53 inches.
