a plus quilt for Louise

When you lose a dearest friend and within 8 weeks her namesake is born, you drop everything, and make a quilt.

A plus quilt to remind us to keep thinking positive.

These cute pinks, blues, and grays are from a 2016 bundle from Stash Fabrics that was put together by Ashley from Film in the Fridge.

The backing and binding are from original Cotton and Steel collections.  Straight line quilting about an inch apart with Quilter's Dream request loft batting always makes for a  lightweight and drapey finish. 💖

This one was hard...and healing.

  1. Oh Karen... I saw this quilt on Instagram too, and my thoughts immediately went toward sympathy. I'm very sorry for what you're going through, and admire you for turning to quiltmaking as positive (pun intended) therapy. This is a lovely way to express your feelings about the loss, and will surely help comfort the recipient. What a good friend you are! I hope you all, in time, find peace.
