We all made a simple plus quilt following a free pattern by Jeli Quilts.
We needed 8 different fabrics for this pattern so it was a perfect use for this Gardenvale piece I purchased last summer.
I cut 5 inch squares for my pluses so this quilt finishes at 45” x 58.5”
I used a matching striped Gardenvale fabric for the binding.
My favorite thing about this quilt is the backing. It's a new Andover jersy knit by Alison Glass. I highly recommend it. It was almost 70” wide - even after pre-washing & drying. By the way, no bleeding of that beautiful blue in the pre-wash.
The batting is Quilter’s Dream Request loft cotton. Thin batting and the t-shirt backing make this a dreamy summer quilt.
I free motion quilted a geometric design in each of the squares. You can see it (a little) better on the back. (The color is off here. The previous photo shows a more accurate blue.)
Thanks for stopping by.
Linking up this Friday finish with Crazy Mom Quilts.
