Top Done!

I started this Plus quilt in December.  I bought 5 matching charm packs from Connecting Threads when they were on sale for $1.00 each. BARGAIN! Except when I started planning the quilt I only used the fall colors leaving the brighter colors for another quilt.  I cut out several of the blocks from either fat quarters or yardage.  All of the background fabric came from stash. 

I've already started the backing.  I have a length of fabric that I will be splitting and then adding extra strip of plus blocks.  That should give me a backing from my stash. (Little Snoopy dance going on here since I can use only my stash for this quilt. Well, I did buy the charm packs but that was early last year!) 

I am linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?,  Finished or Not Friday, Wips In Progress. Some of these I'll have to link with tomorrow.  Spend some time checking out what folks are working on these days.  I always spend a bit of time checking out others blogs.  I really enjoy it but boy do I get way too many ideas.  

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. Very nice. You were bold with your neutrals. I tend to go similar on my scrappy backgrounds

  2. You made some great progress with your pluses. Those fall colors are so rich. It's nice to be able to pull from the stash some, even the new stuff was in the stash and it's not. Happy stitching this weekend.

  3. I really like the contrast between the pluses being one fabric each and the background being scrappy. It makes the pluses seem really solid and firm, floating against a changing background.

  4. Good choice to use multiple background fabrics. Makes the quilt glow! Liz in Houston

  5. Looking very nice and that was a really great bargain.


I am pleased you've come to visit. I hope you will leave a comment.
