SHOT COTTON PLUS

Yesterday I managed a few minutes in my sewing room and finished piecing the blocks for this quilt.
I'm stopping at 20 blocks which will give me a nice lap size quilt


I hope to be able to show you a finished quilt soon : )

After shoving the scraps aside cleaning up a bit, I found my 100 modern blocks book and made a couple more blocks.

#40


#41


I'm nearly half way there!

Have yourself a lovely week end

I adore those “plus” blocks. I really look forward to seeing the finished quilt. Every time I think I know what I’m going to start next, you post something awesome and I change my mind! :)

Your city sampler blocks are awesome as well!

Hi Carla! I love this quilt top! Fantastic fabrics/colours and the block is Super! My hb doesn't like plus blocks as he sees there Cross but I could make these x putting the blocks in point. Thank you for sharing inspiration! x Teje

That first quilt is incredible! The internet isn't cooperating at the moment and the second quilt photo wouldn't load, but knowing your work, it is surely gorgeous too.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Your 'plus' quilt looks nice, fun and bright.

Carla said...

*********Liz, I used an older block measurement. If you google plus block several should come up. You need to add an e-mail address to your profile so people can reply to you ; )
