Finished or Not Friday | a King Size Brick Cottage Lane {2}

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


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My not finished is a king size Brick Cottage Lane {2} quilt which had been aging in the closet for 9 months!



I made this quilt top when I wrote the pattern last summer, but I chose to use the Bonnie and Camille version for the cover quilt, and this quilt didn't get quilted... until now!  I intended to finish the quilting and bind it today, but it took a long time to quilt this big baby, and I had to take lots of chauffeuring breaks!  Here she is just coming off the quilting frame.



The quilting is an edge-to-edge floral design which will be my go-to pattern and one that I offer to customers when I begin custom quilting.  I've named my new machine Gratitude, which is a combination of grateful and attitude!  Have a grateful attitude!


The Brick Cottage Lane {2} pattern includes 5 sizes from baby to king with instructions for traditional piecing, as well as strip piecing to make the process faster.  You can buy the pattern in my pattern shop.

And here is Brick Cottage Lane {2} in Bonnie and Camille prints and white.  Super sweet!

I love this quilt so much! I'm always a sucker for Irish chains, and this feels like a modern take on that. It's gorgeous!
