Brick Cottage Lane {2} {a New Pattern!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Meet Brick Cottage Lane {2} - an eye-catching quilt that's easier than it looks with strip piecing!  The pattern includes instructions for 5 sizes from baby to king, using yardage as well as scraps.  If you prefer traditional piecing rather than strip piecing, you'll find instructions just for you, too!


The quilt above is a king size in Bonnie & Camille lines Vintage Picnic, Miss Kate, and a few Daysail prints with Kona Snow.  The backing and binding are the extra-wide dark navy check from the Vintage Picnic line.

Shannon of The Flemings Nine edited and tested the pattern for me.  I would never be able to write coherent patterns without her help, so thanks a bundle, Shannon!  Her quilt is a twin in Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille with a few other prints added.  Shannon sells quilts in her Etsy shop.


Alycia of Alycia Quilts tested the pattern in patriotic fabrics in lap size.  I ♥ the scrappy background fabrics and the bold red and cool blues!  I would never have thought to use more than one fabric for the background, and I must do this one day!  Alycia is a long-arm quilter in Colorado.

Inspiration!

Where did I get my inspiration for Brick Cottage Lane {2}?  I was playing around in EQ7 and created it on my own.  But, wait!  Here is an antique quilt that is similar!  This one is called Sunshine and Shadow, sometimes known as Trip Around the World.  So does that make Brick Cottage Lane {2} original?  Yes, even though this antique quilt existed before mine, Brick Cottage Lane {2} is original because it is not exactly the same and would be considered a variation of another design, although my quilt was created without knowledge of this antique quilt. Antique quilts in the public domain are not copyrightable, so it's all a moot point anyway.  However, the written pattern and all graphics in it are copyrightable.  And no, this is not legal advice; seek your own legal counsel for your situation as I did.


Brick Cottage Lane {2} is available in my Craftsy shop and my Etsy shop.  Please purchase from my Etsy shop if you are in the European Union.  Thank you for your support!

Well, I grabbed this one fast 😉 Lovely work coming up with a second design. Wish I had done that with the first one as well. Both are wonderful designs. Thank you!

I bought the original but haven't made it yet. Will you be sending the updated pattern to people who bought the first pattern?

Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts said...

@ PugMom. No, I will not be giving away the second pattern to those who purchased the first. It’s not an update at all; they are significantly different, and it’s a whole new pattern. I started from scratch to make the second one just like I did the first one.

Well done, Myra. I see this pattern having a lot of potential, and though I appreciate the antique in two tone, your color blend is the bomb. I give you a 10!

I love when patterns are easier than they look! This pattern is beautiful both in the scrappy version as well as the two colors one. Thanks for sharing!!

The new pattern looks wonderful;-) I managed to work on the original BCL quilt on vacation. I now have 13 rows all together(remember I am the nut using scraps, so all brick by brick!)

Wonderful quilt!

It is a great pattern! I saw Alycia's this morning and had to pop in to see more! Her's is just gorgeous! Asking her to be a pattern tester was a great idea!

Oh how gorgeous! I think it's highly innovative and updates the antique design beautifully. I have a broken hand now but would love to make this pattern into a lovely quilt someday so am adding it to my Pinterest board.
