My Quip – Quilts in Progress – V Bricks


All the morning chores taken care of and before I get into designing the next quilt of the next series of I thought you may like to get a glimpse of the top of V Bricks from the C&N Series.

This time and again we’ve incorporated a good percentage of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. And again the pattern and construction is based on vertical strips of rectangular blocks, or bricks. Each brick is approximately 7” (17.8 cms) by 3” (7.6 cms).

The impression of a quilt of vertical rectangles dates to the late 1700s, and the construction idea for this quilt is taken from Fassett’s book Museum Quilts, Designs Inspired by the Victoria & Albert Museum, with Liza Prior Lucy; 2005.

We have added a frame to give it a sense of a depiction of the colors.
