Last night I took one of my pictures of the bricks and used a drawing app called Procreate to draw on top of the bricks so I could see how I could model a quilt after it.  These aren't the colors I'm using...I just wanted to use lots of colors to see where everything would go.

Ah, technology!


  1. I'm so glad you did that. I love the brick pattern and didn't have time to look at it closely enough to convert it into quilt-talk.
    I hope you do make at least a small quilt like this. It is very interesting, and the brick layer had to be a true artisan! (I usually think of quilts lasting longer than buildings, so I'm glad this building is still around!)

    1. Milwaukee has some beautiful old school buildings. The building I work in was built in the late 30s and has lots of Art Deco details...lots of quilt inspiration!
