22 Mar Modern Plus Sign Quilts blog hop!
I’m thrilled to be participating in the blog hop for Modern Plus Sign Quilts by Paige Alexander (@quiltedblooms) and Cheryl Brickey (@meadowmistdesigns)! The graphic plus sign is such a great design to build a quilt around. Paige and Cheryl have come up with 16 different plus sign designs. There is a size and technique for everyone in this book! Quilts come in small and large and feature piecing, applique and paper piecing – all with complete instructions.
Choosing which quilt to make from the book was hard – there are so many good ones! I finally decided on Intertwined because I always enjoy quilts where the blocks nest together. Are you surprised that this quilt isn’t black and white? I thought about it! But two color quilts don’t work well with blocks that nest (not enough contrast). So I used one of my other favorite color schemes – blue, green and orange. I had plenty of fabric in my stash and some Kona Snow for the background.
Intertwined is a twin sized quilt in the book, but I decided to make it ¾ size to make a medium sized throw. My quilt finishes at about 51″ x 66″. I quilted it with horizontal lines about 3/4″ apart using Aurifil 2021. (That is our gardening frame and its shadow on the right side of the picture – spring and vegetable gardening will come to Michigan eventually!)
