Finished Plus Quilt

IMG_9427

Love the way this one turned out.  This pattern definitely calls for simple quilting, and straight lines here and there did just the trick.

The back is this fabulous print from the Denyse Schmidt collection at Joann’s.  I bought 2 yards of this the first time I saw it  because I love it so much as a back…or pillows.

I really should have ironed this before pictures.  Oh well.  :)

Great colors--beautiful quilt.

Toni said...

Gosh I love this quilt! I feel like I say that about everything you make. The binding is just about the perfect green and looks great. Seriously, have you ever made anything ugly??

ecuakim said...

Oh my goodness that quilt is so cute. I can't even stand it.

Katie B. said...

I love it!

Lindsay Conner said...

So fresh and pretty! Love your fabrics!

Great pictures by the water! I live near the beach and never take pics there I should. The quilt is just beautiful!

Kajsa said...

Very nice quilt. Love the colors! :)

diane said...

love the quilt and the photo location is perfect to show it off!

Barbara said...

This is super cute!

Heather said...

That is fantastic! The colors are so “me”, I may have to make one now. I agree, that backing fabric is great :)

Your blog has inspired me to make my very first quilt! Thank you! I'm going to use Pooches and Pickups (or whatever it's called!) for my son's room. I don't think I'll be able to make them as quickly and as beautifully as you do, but it's worth a try! I plan to purchase your Easy Bake Pattern for my next quilt (it's addictive).

But what I absolutely LOVE about your blog is that you're not a "fabric snob." You definitely showcase some amazing designer fabric. But you also highlight some of the the great finds from JoAnn (where I almost always have a 40% coupon in my purse!). I love the "high low" design aesthetic.

Thank you! Lindsay

Where'd you get this pattern. I would love to make a cross quilt for my boyfriends mom.

Absolutely lovely!! Love your backing - I'm using that fabric for a binding soon. I just finished a different style of plus quilt if your are interested....

The colors all go together so well. Good Job! Haven't been able to find Denise Schmit at my JoAnne's guess I'll have to keep looking.

I love all your fresh looking quilts. I just started working in a real quilt shop, I feel like I'm in a candy store! Could you post a link on my Reap What You Sew Linky Party? http://the4rsramblings@blogspot.com
Thanks in advance!

Kylie Lloyd said...

The quilt looks so fresh with the aqua and green combos with the white background. You should feel proud. The basic quilting definitely does it justice. Great quilt

Kirsten N said...

Love this quilt and the backing is perfect for it!

Beth said...

The colors are so refreshing. It will always say "summer", don't you think? And you couldn't have found a better match for a backing. Thanks for sharing.

Stupid question alert!!

I'm sure you have it listed somehwere, but for some reason, I can't see it now.

Do you have a place for us to upload pictures of finished quilts using your patterns? I have 2 of your patterns finished (and more in the works). I am IN LOVE with how they turned out!

...and I used to say I wasn't a quilter! I guess I'm quickly changing my tune.
