I am so pleased to share this quilt with you today! A few weeks ago, Rossie at Fresh Modern Quilts asked for pattern testers for her new quilt design. I was lucky to be accepted, and I got started right away.
I ended up switching the low volume fabrics into the plus shape instead of using them for the background - I love the different look it gives! I used an assortment of solids from my stash for the puss in the corner blocks. All of the background fabrics are black and grey, and I love the pop of color from those solids! The pattern is well written, and very straightforward. The quilt came together very quickly once I had everything cut out!
I backed the quilt with Kona Raisin, and used the same great silver and white stripe for the binding that I used on my woven quilt. I quilted it using diagonal lines through each section of the block.
Samantha (my oldest) keeps telling me how beautiful this quilt is, and how she wants a quilt like this for her bed. :)
Best part? Rossie gave me a copy of the pattern to give away! All you have to do is leave a comment, and if you feel like it, let me know what quilt you're working on right now - I love new inspiration and ideas! Comments close Thursday at midnight CDT and I'll choose a winner then! Please make sure you leave your email address if you are a no-reply blogger commenter, otherwise I can't reach you! I will also update this post on Friday with the winner, so check back!
**Edited to add** Trish - you are the winner of the pattern! Thanks for the comments everyone!
Love the colours in this new quilt! I've haven't tried a Greek cross quilt yet.. instructions would be very useful ;). The weather is stormy here, perfect for getting the fabric out. I'm working on triangles, not a big quilt - a table runner.ReplyDelete
I'm working on a quilt with various star blocks mostly solids with a print in the center of each star and a black background. I've been looking at plus quilts lately to make one for my sister, so a pattern would be great. :-)ReplyDelete
Paper piecing paper piecing paper piecing little things. I love it. I have the fabric for a plus/cross quilt, but haven't got around to it.ReplyDelete
Love how the quilt turned out and the pops of color. Currently I am working on Dear Jane in purple batiks and a white background.ReplyDelete
