Last year, I was the lucky winner of two digital quilt patterns donated by Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs. I won this wonderful prize as a participant in the 2015/16 Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long which was hosted by Cheryl. (I must make mention that I’m super excited to have just signed up for the 2016/17 Meadow Mystery Quilt-a-long which is due to start next month!)
Cheryl is an amazing pattern writer and has some lovely patterns for sale. It was hard to choose but eventually I decided on her Plus Plus pattern and Sea Star pattern.
I decided to use a selection of Cotton and Steel fabrics from my stash for my Plus Plus Quilt.
I am, like many others, a huge fan of these funky modern fabrics and made a Cotton & Steel Quilt for my daughter last year as a gift for her 10th birthday. I have amassed quite a collection of these colourful fabrics and already have plans for a future third Cotton & Steel Quilt…
The Plus Plus lap size quilt I am making will end up at 63″ square and consists of 25 large plus blocks and 24 small plus blocks.
Of the required forty-nine 9½ inch blocks, I have so far made thirty four of them and hope to complete the remaining blocks this week.
This quilt is one of my Quarter 2 goals for A Lovely Year of Finishes and although, unfortunately, I can’t see myself finding enough sewing time this month to completely finish this quilt… I am remaining optimistically hopeful of at least a flimsy finish 🙂
