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. ;)
P.S. I will be linking up with Oh Scrap today. Check it out to see more fun scrap projects.
