a plus quilt finished!

This is the first time I have made a plus quilt, and I am really liking this pattern.  It's so simple (just squares), but I love that it creates a design too.  
I just now realized that this is actually another pixelated quilt, to go along with the other two I'm working on.

When we moved back to Texas a year and a half ago, I was naturally very worried about my school age daughter.  I worried more about her than anything else.  

As it usually goes, her adjustment to new school and new friends was a breeze.  I owe most of that to her teacher last year, we really lucked out.  That same teacher just had a baby, so this quilt is for her baby.  I love her so much.  She helped my daughter to blossom and brought out the best in her. 
I quilted it on either side of the seams, and I love the texture it has, so soft.


 Bound in blue and white stripes (this might be my very favorite binding ever, it's just so clean and crisp).  Binding is from Sarah Jane's Out to Sea line for Michael Miller

What is the fabric that you used to bind this quilt. I can't find this stripe anywhere.

Love the fabric combo, especially the green Let's Pretend backing. I may have to emulate this quilt for my boss' new baby boy!

This is nice. Are those 5" squares or charms? I want to make one now. In fact I am cutting up all my pirate stripe into binding. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

I love it! How big are your squares? I've been wanting to make a plus quilt for a long time but I can never figure out the size of it!

I love it! The binding is so much fun. Your daughter's teacher is going to love it. I just made my first plus quilt in greens and blues and I really enjoyed putting it together!

I don't often comment but this quilt is so gorgeous! I love the colors.

Annalia said...

Those colors are great! I love a plus quilt. I'll have to try one w/ 5" squares...instead of 2 1/2". Sounds a lot faster!
