Molly's Bricks in Bloom

Pin It

Hooray!  My new Moda Bake Shop tutorial is up! 
Go see, and let me know what you think!
I'll be back later to fill in some more background, but for now, it's late... so I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by!

Some more pics for you. :)

Some ideas for boy-ifying this:

I have a couple boy fabrics that I think would work well for this, only the appliqué pieces wouldn't quite be as big.

The Aldo to Zippy would be great, perhaps using some of the letters from the alphabet panel to spell out baby's name in the middle section.

The 2D zoo, using solids and silhouettes for the center section (you'd have to make your own pieces, but since they are just simple outlines on solids, it wouldn't be too bad).

I also think the Wheels collection would be awesome... with little cars "driving" through the middle!

Some notes on the math, and using other collections:

The Oz bundle has, if I remember correctly, 6 greens, and 5 pinks, other than the big focal prints. 

The quilt top needs a total of 91 bricks (hopefully I did my math correctly there), so if you get 12 bricks from each FQ, you need a total of 8 (will give you 5 bricks left-over).  You might have to change the lay-out slightly with only 8 FQs, because the distribution of the brick sizes is not exactly even.  My lay-out used more medium and large bricks than small.

This quilt would work great with any fabric line that has large focal print pieces!

I 'love' this quilt design! This would be perfect for a baby quilt I need to make - except it's for a boy ;) I can switch the pinks for some turquoises, but what appliques would you suggest doing instead of the flowers?
