Modern Plus Sign Quilts Book Blog Hop

When Cheryl, of  Meadow Mist Designs, and Paige, of Quilted Blooms  invited me to make a quilt from their new book Modern Plus Sign Quilts I was absolutely ecstatic!  I know both of these ladies to be extremely talented quilters and designers and I could not wait to see what they had put together this time around.



You can purchase the book here:
Signed Copies

Hard copy or digital:

They had asked me which of the 16 quilts in the book I would like to make and I just COULD NOT CHOOSE. There is a pretty good chance I will make at least half of the quilts in here!!  I ended up making Plus Surround.  This pattern was so amazingly well thought out!  I was a teeny bit intimidated because I had never tried anything like it before.  But, it was so straight-forward, that there was zero stress once I got started making it.  The size of the quilt is just perfect for a bed topper or a large throw.  
Although I don't have the quilting skills to do anything fancy with the quilting, this particular design would be the perfect pattern to show off an elaborate quilting motif if that is something you are looking for.  

I was really lucky and we had one day where the ground wasn't a muddy mess and I could take my quilt outside for a super quick photo session (hence the lack of decent pressing ahead of time).  










There are other quilters on the hop today (and yesterday, and tomorrow)  :)  Make sure you check them out.  These patterns are so versatile that everyone will have a different take on them.  Also, make sure to check out Cheryl's and Paige's blogs every day too.  They have giveaways!!!!!

  17. Your blue and white quilt really speaks to my heart. And I love the simple quilting. Many of the other beautiful quilts on the hop have really dense quilting, which is intimidating to me. Your quilt is an inspiration because I know I can and will do this. Thanks!

  21. It looks so pretty in the blue. I am light quilter myself, and I think your light quilting showcases the design and the prints. I also like the second photo :)
