When I saw this plus quilt pattern in one of my quilt magazines. I’m sorry I can’t find the one I saw it in at the moment. To say my sewing room is a mess may be a bit of an understatement. I’ll post it when I find it. I knew I had to make it.
I pulled all my gray and light blue scraps and started cutting them into 2 1/2″ strips with myGo Cutter. I didn’t worry about length. I just made sure they were at least wide enough for the strip and long enough to get a few of the pieces cut once the strip was made. I then sub-cut them into the needed sizes. After auditioning different fabrics for the plus signs I came up with a few reds, greens and yellows I liked. I quilted it a 1/4″ from the seams to created framed squares. My binding angel, Sherri bond it in black for me.
I just love how it looks hanging in the tree with the lovely fall leaves around it. Thank you for your great response to last weeks giveaway. Your kind comments meant so much.
