WIP Sunday...On the Plus Side

No new fabrics to show this week, instead I'll show a bit of what I've been trying to work on this past week.

I've had this stack of fabric for quite awhile now. It is one of the higher quality fabrics found at Joann Fabrics. I was holding onto this stack, waiting until the right pattern sparked my interest, and thought I had found it last December. Initially I was going to make Radio Way by Jaybird Quilts, as the colors were somewhat similar. Then, I was hit by the Christmas quilt bug and made Radio Way using some Christmas prints I had instead of this stack.
Wanting to try out a variety of patterns, I'm not wanting to do the same one again so soon. So, on the back burner went my little bundle.
At some point I started noticing the plus quilts being made recently, especially this one at In Color Order. And although I was planning on making a plus quilt out of vintage sheets, the thought of using this fabric crept into my subconscious, and that's what I've been doing this past week...cutting 300+ 4.5in squares.

Using the initial prints as the core, I pulled lots of other complimentary fabrics to go along with them.


Saturday I was able to get my layout decided, and even managed to sew a couple of rows.

  3. I love this color scheme for a plus quilt. It can be so hard to start cutting into a fabric stack.
