I made this quilt for our neighbor, Sarah, who was recently in a serious car accident. She's only 16 years old, and she has a long recovery ahead of her.
I happened to have several precuts of Soiree in my stash, and I started by cutting my layer cake pieces in half to form 5"x10" bricks. I wanted to stagger the bricks, so I used charm squares to fill in the gaps on the ends of the strips! And there you have it, a quick trick brick stack. :) (Once that name popped into my head, I was reciting Dr. Suess whenever I works on this quilt!)
To finish this quilt, I meander quilted and bound it with a few jelly roll strips. For the quilt top and back I used 1 layer cake, 1 jelly roll, and 2 charm packs plus about a 1/2 yard of kona. Finished size is about 61.5"x63".
It's all washed up and ready to be gifted! I hope that it brings some cheer and warmth to Sarah's room as she continues to recover.
