Innocent Crush Colorbrick Quilt

At last, it's finally done! I used a fat quarter bundle of Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush fabric in the warm colors. The hand quilting took a bit longer than I thought it would but I absolutely LOVE how it came out! This one is mine, all mine.

This was my second Colorbrick quilt and it's just perfect for showing off those gorgeous fabrics.

I used pearl cotton no. 8 for the quilting, ecru for inside the blocks and alternating light pink, dark pink and orange for outside the blocks. I didn't use a hoop or frame or anything for quilting, I just basted the quilt really well and tried to keep it smoothed it out in my lap as I went along.

The stitches are not perfect but I like it that way.

So, this was my third finished project for August and I'm feeling good about the progress I made to meet my cleaning/finishing goals.

Really a beautiful quilt, just lovely. You are right, it's a perfect pattern to showcase the prints. I have a stack of these fabrics as well and haven't picked a pattern yet but now I want to move it to the front of the to-do list!!
