Valentine Quilt in Progress
It is no secret that I love seasonal quilts and that I love plus quilts. I have wanted to make a valentine plus quilt ever since I saw the one Deb made. I learned that plus quilts turn out the best with a good balance of lights, mediums, and darks. So when I saw the Ever After layer cake by Deb Strain which has whites, light and medium pinks, reds, gray, and black, I thought it would be great for a plus quilt. So I bought a matching layer cake and charm pack. However, I found that there really wasn't enough variety in prints in the layer cake. So I added some scraps for variety.
I kept adding more scraps. This time from my Quilty Kisses quilt. I think the lips are my favorite fabric in there.
It was much better, but the fabrics needed just a little bit more shifting.
Yep! I like this arrangement with these additions. ;)
Do you add more fabrics for variety when you use a precut?
