PLUS SIGN QUILT
This is our first real snow of the year. Dottie sat watching it fall for about an hour before she wanted to go out and play in it. She is suspicious of things that drop from the sky, especially rain. The snow seems to intrigue her.
Yesterday I picked up my small Plus Sign quilt from my long-armer and friend, Reggie. I was surprised she was able to get this done before Christmas by the look of the stacks of things to quilt.
The fabrics for this quilt are a few Riley Blake charm packs with no name on them plus some fabric from my stash. I thought I was making this for our truck, but it's rather sweet looking and may end up being a lap quilt in the TV room. The backing is French script. The Plus Sign is a super easy pattern to execute, especially if you use precut squares. Don't be afraid to try this one. Laying out the blocks is the most difficult part of the whole thing! I didn't think it needed a border, so that made it even quicker.
Wishing all of you a wonderful Sunday.
