This pretty little Pretty Bricks Quilt is now complete :). This quilt contains beautiful soft colors from a variety of designers and fabrics (see bottom of this post for a list of fabrics).

This quilt contains no shashing - instead it has a simple repeating pattern throughout the quilt top:

The quilt back is as simple as can be - a single sheet beautiful print from Henry Glass and Co. The contrast shows up each side of the quilt but at the same time each consist of beautiful florals for consistency:

For the binding I used a playful and colorful polka dot cotton print. I love how the aqua plays against the pink of the fabric and it picks up the aqua from some of the fabrics on the quilt top:

I do love this little girly quilt. It has a soft beauty about it.  It's simple design keep the focus on the beautiful fabrics.
