TGIFF - Plus Playtime

Have you seen the new QAL being hosted by Sandra @ Musings of Menopausal Melon?  It's a free pattern, and there is still lots of time to join.  You can find more details about the QAL here.

I'll be sewing along with the QAL, but I had already started a quilt.  Here's my version using Kona Ice Frappe and Kale for the background fabrics.


I attempted a new quilting motif.  It was supposed to be straight lines with a circle added.  My straight lines turned into wavy lines, and my circles ended up alternating up and down from the line. Although it's not what I intended to do, I like it.


I love that we have more daylight, but the challenge is finding the right time and location in order to capture the true colours of the fabrics.


And an indoor photo.  I think this most accurately reflects the true colours.



The sewing instructions haven't been released yet, so there is plenty of time to jump on board and join the adventure.  Stay tuned to see my next version using a print for the background and Kona solids for the pluses.

I'm linking up with the following:

I love that pattern but was too busy to take part - just have too many things going on - love yours and that sewing machine which I'm sure I have mentioned before.

The quilting might not be what you intended, but it is really fun and is perfect for the quilt top!

I really like your version - and that quilting is really fun! I’ve actually been thinking about joining this QAL.

The quilting looks spectacular Anja.

I love that you are adventurous in your colour choices (love the Kale!) but your quikting too! You are an inspiration Anja!

I like the not-typical arrangement of the pluses. And the contrast of prints and solids. Very nice quilting too ;)

Rochelle aka Bella Quilts said...

Such a great looking quilt. How different the colors look from outside shot to inside. Wonderful job.

Wait what? I know this quilt, know the Singer pic of it...how come my comment isn't here? Or maybe I saw it on IG? Weird... Love this green sweet quilt! I love seeing the different background combos. You've nailed yours and with the bright pluses dancing across it's so cheery. Thank you for doing the QAL (making TWO!) and now we can tell everyone, testing the smaller version! I need to get my butt in gear and publish the pattern...
