Another Change...

The pile of flannel that I've had plans for since this time last year is finally cut, however, not for the first two patterns I had picked out for it. I went from the Log Cabin Chairs pattern I had designed...to the Stars & Diamonds...then on to one of these...
Positively love plus quilts  [Add it Up Quilt Front by Fresh Lemons]
(Love this one! ~click on picture for source info~)
Third times a charm, right?
So, the final choice of pattern...a Plus Quilt.
After picking out the pattern, I used a free quilt program and colored in the blocks to correspond with the material I'm using. However, I did have to find a few extra materials to finish having enough blocks. Also, I decide to go with all the same size blocks rather than making the longer middle sections of the plus sign.

So, I do have all 210 6.5"x6.5" squares cut out and ready to sew together, however, I'm going to be working on another quilt for a little while, so this one will be on hold again... just not as far back in the pile as it had been!

The other quilt is a lattice type quilt... like this, only in different colors :)

The material for this has been cut for a couple of months, but I really need to start sewing it together. I did about 10 of the HST triangles last night... I have a BUNCH more to go :)

I also need to do a couple of small projects, one includes making up some of these blocks...

These blocks will be sent to Michigan to Margaret's Hope Chest to be sewn into quilts for kids. You can read all about it and see the tutorial on making these squares all at the Margaret's Hope Chest Blog. A bonus, the deadline was extended to the end of July, so there is still plenty of time to join in!

I'm excited to try out some monochromatic sewing... I think this will be fun!

Have a great mid-week... hope to join up with Lee on WIP Wednesday tomorrow at Freshly Pieced (if I remember!)

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep His commandments:
for this is the whole duty of man.
Ecclesiastes 12:13


  1. how lovely and bright and I just want to wrap it around me...( in the fall ) lol

  2. You have a lot of great projects going on! That "plus" quilt is another great way to use up scraps; thanks for sharing!


  3. I love both the quilts. I'll have to make one of the plus quilts.

  4. The Plus Quilt will look awesome - they always do! Love seeing your WIPs!

  5. I do like the plus sign design. Simple but very pretty. Looks like a great one for left over fabric!
