The whole thing was inspired by this multi-colored remnant I found on the Freebee table at guild. The rest of the fabrics came from my collection.
The bricks are cut 5 1/2" x 2 1/2". Then each one is joined to a 2 1/2 background square. Press seams toward the brick.
Here are two of the five columns pieced, ready to trim to a 1/4" of an inch from the brick points.
I like to trim on the floor because I can set up my cutting mat 'portrait' style for longer cuts.
When I posted it to my Facebook account DS1 quipped, "I'm shocked! You made a quilt with blues and purples??" Funny man, he knows my color preferences.
