Plus Quilt in Progress


This navy, aqua and green plus quilt is made with the scraps from A Day in the Country.  I had bought quarter yard cuts, but ended up only using 3.5 inch strips of each fabric.


I cut the squares out at six inches because that is what was left of the original quarter yard cuts.  Knowing I wanted to make a lap quilt I did purchase a few more sixth yard cuts last year so that there would be some fabrics with more than one plus.  I started out laying the fabrics on the design floor and realized that I needed a little more variety.  So I pulled out scraps from three other quilts.


The extra fabrics really helped a lot.


I marked the rows with pins, stacked them up, and pretty soon had a finished quilt top.


You can see evidence of the quilt inspector in the picture above.  The monkey feet would not move for the picture.  ;)
