brick road baby quilt



I made this baby quilt a few weeks ago, but had to wait until after the shower for the big reveal. This quilt is for our friends who are having a baby boy next month. I based the colors off of their baby bedding, which is a teal, brown and green safari theme.





I knew I wanted to make a brick road quilt, so I cut out rectangular blocks (2.5"x5") and arranged them in this geometric pattern. I used 1/3 yard of each solid and then 1.5 yards of the stripes for the backing and binding. The final quilt is about 32"x38" (but I'm totally guessing because I forgot to measure it when I was finished).

  4. Great color combo! Also love the striped binding/backing; I would have been nervous to use it for both, but it turned out great.
    Did you strip piece the top, or sew the individual rectangles?

  14. I love these colors. Awesome quilt. Perfect for boy or girl. Maybe it's because I like non-girly colors.
