Thank you once again, Amy, for sharing your quilting AND computer talents, enabling us quilters to come together and SHARE!!!
In my house, we make "New Year's Resolutions" (so to speak) the day after the Blogger's Quilt Festival. My physical and mental calendar evolve around this 6 month plan.
I've named this quilt "noteworthy plus".
This is a variation of Cluck Cluck Sew's "INSIDE OUT" pattern. You can find it in her pattern shop here.
The pattern uses 5 inch squares, but I wanted the plus signs to be bigger, so I started with 7 1/2 in. squares. If you're looking at the pattern, substitute the following cuttings:
1st cut - 3.75"
2nd cut - 2.50"
3rd cut - 3.75"
I love the back:
It's created from a pile of "discard" strips from the cutting phase, and the yellow square that was just too much yellow for the front.
the contrast is interesting . . . circles, straight lines . . .
notice how much your quilting shows up in a large negative space?
Quilted with a DSM (not the mental disorder). I won't do it again unless my life is threatened. Yes, I turned the whole quilt around in circles LOTS of times. And since I was impatient and not careful, it looks organicly organic :)
(don't let your middle schooler say "why do I have to learn this stuff? . . . I'll never use it!")
