Mendocino Brick quilt

It's been quite some time since I posted a finished quilt.  As I was making Kieran's bed this morning, I realized that I never got around to sharing his Mendocino Brick quilt.  It was finished earlier this year (can't remember exactly when) and hastily thrown onto his bed for warmth.

I was afraid the binding I chose (Bob's Shirt from an old Erin McMorris line) would be too dark, but I think it's perfect.  And I adore the back, an oldie but goody from Deer Valley by Joel Dewberry.  I would adore it more if the lines were seamless, but apparently, this is what happens when you buy a stripey print from two different bolts:  

See where the lines match up perfectly on the left?  That's the middle of the quilt.  As you veer away from that middle point, the lines become more and more off-kilter.  It took me a whole day to get over it.

Kieran already has plans for his next quilt.  Take a number, kid.  I still have three other finished tops to quilt, plus a quilt to start and finish for an August wedding.


  1. What a cute quilt! I think the binding fabric is perfect. Ugh, but that drives me crazy when printed strips aren't parallel to the warp or weft (or whatever those thingies are)! :P:P:P


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
