I recently finished this plus quilt which is a gift for a friend. It was partly inspired by this quilt at A Maidenhair Fern. While the greens and blues remind me of summer, they remind my friend of spring. So I have named this quilt, "Spring Addition."
This will definitely not be my last plus quilt. I already have plans (and fabric) for a "Valentine Addition."
I quilted this on my Baby Lock Tiara in my little sewing area at my mom's house.
The back of this quilt is a nice spring green minky. The color is a little darker than shows up in the picture.
I always love how the minky shows off the quilting design.
My friend chose the quilting design which is just loops and lopsided flowers.
I have decided that lopsided flowers are much cuter than perfectly even flowers. ;)
I bound the quilt in a navy blue textured fabric. I love how it frames the quilt.
My friend is excited to have her own minky backed quilt after having made four quilts (all with minky on back) for everyone else in her family last year.
I love simple quilts!
