RANDOM THURSDAY

My Plus quilt top is together--although small. After I joined all the rows I decided it has to be bigger.
24 blocks just isn't enough!



It's a random mix of low volume for the background and bright fabrics for the Plus signs.


This is one of my favourite background prints. Love those wee turtles



I have an appointment with the quilter in July, so I have until then to get more blocks added on


Also, I have my two grand babes today so I set up the 'pool'            : )


Should be fun!


linking up with Cindy for Random Thursday

I love this so much! From a distance you really see those plus signs, and from up close you get to see all those fun low volume fabrics. Love that you used the little turtles too!

Ooooh, it's so pretty! I love that you showed the up-close fabrics so I can ogle them even more. I hope the "swimming" went well - ha! My little grandson is coming over tomorrow night for me to watch and we're going to plant carrot seeds in the garden! Fun!

your quilt looks beautiful! I would never have thought to mix all of those low volumes together, but they really work well! I just started a new link party for quilters today- Needle and Thread Thursday. You should hop over and link up your great work!

Just love that quilt and your pool gave me a good giggle. I remember the days of coaxing my DD into her baby pool so I could sit in it and cool off too!
