Plus Plus Blocks

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.

Cotton & Steel fabricsI 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.PlusPlus1

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… PlusPlus4PlusPlus2 I am remaining optimistically hopeful of at least a flimsy finish 🙂PlusPlus3

  1. You’re well on the way to achieving the required 49 Blocks Deb, I’m sure sheer motivation will spur you on, as always, another striking Quilt Top almost finished. Hugs XX


  2. Oh Deb, this top is going to look amazing! You know, I never completely jumped on the C&S wagon, but I really like way they are all playing so well together in your blocks. You are so close to having all your big blocks finished, I know you’ll have them done in no time! Your pictures are so pretty too.


  3. Brilliant choice of modern fabrics Deb for yet another amazing quilt-such interesting blogs and stunning photography too! your super ‘time management’ skills will soon have us see yet another of your beautiful creations-love and hugs Mum XXX
