OMG - It's a Friday Finish...Finally...

My Plus Quilt has been finished since March.  I finally decided to get it quilted and set it as my June OMG goal.  And it is the last of my Q2 Finish Along goals.

I decided to keep it simple and did FMQ loops in the background.  I wanted the pluses to pop, so I left them unquilted.


Striped binding for the win.


Just waiting for a new baby, and then it can go to its forever home.

What great texture the quilting added to the background. And the striped binding is definitely a win. :)

Everyone seems to be doing the "plus" quilts. I am ignorant on this issue. Is there a reason they are so popular?

Lovely finish.

Such a happy bright quilt.

Really nice finish! I like the way you quilted it and that striped binding.

Looks delightful! Great idea to just quilt the background! And to keep it simple. That's how to build your confidence (says I who is still afraid to FMQ on a whole quilt despite all the awesome practicing on small pieces I've accomplished!) :) XO

It's beautiful, Anja! I love that you left the pluses unquilted so that they pop.

I love how scrappy happy this is! Plus quilts are always so fun, I love the binding too, it really pops! :)

The quilt is very nice. I love the binding, it makes the quilt pop I think. With your quilting the pluses do pop, and stand out which is a nice effect. Congrats on finishing it!

Beautiful, Anja! Love how this looks! I think you made the perfect choice with leaving the plus signs as they are. Love the colours!

Love the textures those loops created and the striped binding is da bomb!

Maker Joy said...

What a great quilt. Sticking with loops for the background really makes those pluses pop. The new baby is sure to love it.
