Inside Out

IMG_1933
I can’t get enough of plus quilts…obviously.  I wasn’t initially going to make this pattern because there are plenty of plus quilts already out there…but I love that these can be made with 1 or 2 charm packs, and the quilts compliment each other so well.

The plus quilt can be made with 1 charm pack or 39 squares.  I used some squares of Reunion by Sweetwater mixed with squares from my stash.  I quilted this one with loose loops.

The Inside Out quilt can be made with 2 matching charm packs or 39 pairs of squares.  I used the same fabrics for this one but quilted it with (semi) straight lines.

They make such a cute pair. :)  These would be cute on my boys’ bunk beds too…hmmm.

I'm loving all these quilts. Your little cutie's quilt made me realize I'd underestimated the value of white in a quilt, so I just added several pieces to my 'stash.' And now more ideas for it! (I think I should've bought more...)

Oh great Allison, now I don't know whether to make your Bizzy Kid or this one... lol Guess I'll just have to make both. Love all your quilts and fabric choices!!

Are you going to quilt market? I just decided I'm going last week. If you are I'm going to come track you down :)

Karen said...

These are gorgeous & the fact that you can make them from a couple of charm packs is fab!

So pretty when you see them together. They'd make quite a statement as quilt art.

gale said...

Great quilt. I swore I was not buying more patterns until I use what I have but I had to have this one.

The Sewing Chick said...

Allison, your new quilt patterns are just darling. I love the softer color palette that you have used! You're amazing!

kelli said...

I love that this quilt could be reversible :)

Marsha said...

I needed just the right look for a kids' guest room with 2 twin beds... PERFECT! Hope you don't mind that I pinned them with a link to your blog. Thanks so much - M

What a great idea, the quilts are beautiful! Yours are always the best.

Katy said...

Love this! Love the fabric too - thinking I may need to get my hands on this for a quilt I want to do for Grant's teacher next year. Probably a rag quilt since I put things off to the last second, but this plus quilt would be very cute and very appropriate (plus signs...like math? Get it!:)

I just love the way you change the fabrics and the quilts always look so different! Love the pattern!

I bought that inside out pattern about two seconds after I saw the picture. I've got some twin boys to sew for, and I can't even stand the cuteness of these quilts. You, my friend, are a genius. Thank you.
