Diagonal Brick Quilt

Inspired by Amanda Jean's quilt seen here. I made another bricks pattern quilt for my sister, but it was pieced in straight rows. This may be my new favorite pattern!

Who is this handsome creature sitting on my quilt? He prefers sitting on the quilt to standing in the cold snowy yard.

The backing is a vintage sheet. It is perfect for this quilt-- it has diagonal stripes in red and gray. I quilted it sparingly using simple diagonal stitching in red. The quilting does not stand out on the backing.

The binding for this quilt is pieced from leftover red fabrics. I made it with my new bias tape maker. BTW, these strips are not cut on the bias, but they came out great anyway.
