Bricktown
by Emilee Dube'

As quilters, we absorb the colors and shapes that we see every day. We fuse those common images with inspiration from quilt exhibits, books, blogs, and fabric lines. The marriage becomes an individual creation that speaks to both where we aspire to be as quilters, and what we have already experienced.

The quilt named Bricktown celebrates the downtown entertainment arts district of OKC. It is also a collective inspiration of my experiences in the past year. I was fortunate to travel to Roatan, Honduras last summer. The tile rooftops and creatively designed patios were very interesting. Even the most basic unfinished wooden railing was cut in a purposeful decorative manner, like a quilt block. In the fall, I had the privilege of taking my son to college. Eating brunch in a French-inspired cafe' I fell in love with the cafe' floor tiles. Back at OKQW, Debbie kindly shared her book Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety based on the 2011 New York City exhibit. My goal was to create the impression of a tile floor using pieced rather than appliqué blocks to pay tribute to the rustic wood cut porches of Honduras. At the same time, I aimed to create a red and white quilt that did not use just solid fabrics. Looking closely at photographs of the exhibit quilts, I noticed many were made up of prints although from a distance they appeared to be comprised of solids.

The fabrics in Bricktown (with the exception of the white) are not solids. They are fun geometric blenders and I couldn't resist the red and white cathedral window print! Once the top was complete, I worked with long-arm quilter Leanne Dalke to find a design that would enhance the on-point geometric nature and not distract from the sharply contrasting colors. We selected a thinly spaced diamond spiral maze design with clear thread. Come in to OKQW to take a closer look at the Bricktown quilt. We will be taking orders for kits. Also available is the individual Bricktown Block. I hope you enjoy making it as much I did designing it! —Emilee
