I recently bought a sweet fat quarter bundle that I think will make a perfect plus quilt. Before I cut it up I thought I'd play around with the color wheel and make a practice one first.
I did a Google search for plus quilt instructions and found some here. I used Kona solids in grass, chartreuse, jade, crocus, and purple. Choosing colors is so challenging for me. I pulled the color wheel out and followed the "rules" for blending. I'm so glad I did because I love how these all go together.
Joann's had their solid fleece on sale for 60% off and I found the perfect jade to match the front so I used it for the back. The fleece was so thick I decided to try this one with no batting. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Not too heavy or big. Perfect to be dragged around by a small child.
So this one is being donated to the local women's shelter. I hope it helps heal a broken heart.
And truthfully, I loved these colors so well I decided to use the scraps and play around with some blocks from my new favorite book Vintage Quilt Revival. These are foundation pieced so again, new for me. I have learned I LOVE paper piecing. More of this to come...
