'I love a plus quilt' could possibly be the understatement of the year for me, but I do! So when it came to deciding what I was going to do with the huge pile of Cotton + Steel fabrics I had accumulated, it was a no brainer really.
I downloaded all the fabrics from the Cotton + Steel site in to my EQ7 and made myself a little plan (which I then ignored!). I did all the boring cutting etc at the 'tendo guild, mainly so I could make Pennie and Amy help me lay it all out ;-).
|I overgrammed my progress on IG|
I quilted wonky wavy lines because a. I'm a lazy quilter and b. they look really good on a plus quilt. Aurifil grey (#2605) was my thread of choice as it blends in perfectly with all the colours. I backed and bound the quilt with the last of my stash of Architextures crosshatch in black, the perfect choice to balance out all the colours imo.
It is a little bit on the large size for a lap quilt although I suppose it's coming up to winter and you could wrap yourself up like a sausage in it! ;-)
