Finished Plus Quilt

Love the way this one turned out.  This pattern definitely calls for simple quilting, and straight lines here and there did just the trick.
It is a very simple pattern, but if you need the math done for you for 6 sizes you can find a pattern here.  
The back is this fabulous print from the Denyse Schmidt collection at Joann’s.  I bought 2 yards of this the first time I saw it  because I love it so much as a back…or pillows.
I really should have ironed this before pictures.  Oh well.  :)

    Great colors–beautiful quilt.

    Gosh I love this quilt! I feel like I say that about everything you make. The binding is just about the perfect green and looks great. Seriously, have you ever made anything ugly??

    This is super cute!

  11. Heather July 28, 2011 at 7:26 pm #

    That is fantastic! The colors are so “me”, I may have to make one now. I agree, that backing fabric is great :)

    Your blog has inspired me to make my very first quilt! Thank you! I'm going to use Pooches and Pickups (or whatever it's called!) for my son's room. I don't think I'll be able to make them as quickly and as beautifully as you do, but it's worth a try! I plan to purchase your Easy Bake Pattern for my next quilt (it's addictive).

    But what I absolutely LOVE about your blog is that you're not a "fabric snob." You definitely showcase some amazing designer fabric. But you also highlight some of the the great finds from JoAnn (where I almost always have a 40% coupon in my purse!). I love the "high low" design aesthetic.

    Thank you! Lindsay

    I LOVE this little quilt. I LOVE the backing…dang I probably missed the opportunity for some of that plaid…it was way so cute! I LOVE your color combination! Thanks for all your great inspirations…can't wait to make a bizzy kid quilt!

  24. Debbie July 28, 2011 at 11:02 pm #

    Absolutely lovely!! Love your backing – I'm using that fabric for a binding soon. I just finished a different style of plus quilt if your are interested….

  27. Jennifer July 29, 2011 at 1:00 am #

    The colors all go together so well. Good Job! Haven't been able to find Denise Schmit at my JoAnne's guess I'll have to keep looking.

  28. The4Rs July 29, 2011 at 1:52 am #

    I love all your fresh looking quilts. I just started working in a real quilt shop, I feel like I'm in a candy store! Could you post a link on my Reap What You Sew Linky Party?
    Thanks in advance!

    Such a sweet quilt. I'm IN LOVE with that backing fabric!!!


  31. Kylie Lloyd July 29, 2011 at 3:18 am #

    The quilt looks so fresh with the aqua and green combos with the white background. You should feel proud. The basic quilting definitely does it justice. Great quilt

  32. Kirsten N July 29, 2011 at 4:08 am #

    Love this quilt and the backing is perfect for it!

  33. Beth July 29, 2011 at 4:42 am #

    The colors are so refreshing. It will always say "summer", don't you think? And you couldn't have found a better match for a backing. Thanks for sharing.

    I love it! I have those DS fabrics too and now I'm itching to cut into them. That's a great pattern too.

  48. Annalee July 31, 2011 at 2:12 am #

    Stupid question alert!!

    I'm sure you have it listed somehwere, but for some reason, I can't see it now.

    Do you have a place for us to upload pictures of finished quilts using your patterns? I have 2 of your patterns finished (and more in the works). I am IN LOVE with how they turned out!

    …and I used to say I wasn't a quilter! I guess I'm quickly changing my tune.

    What an adorable quilt!

  50. tusen August 1, 2011 at 6:58 am #

    Lovely quilt. The print on the back is a perfect choice.

  51. lauren.e August 5, 2011 at 2:20 pm #

    love the quilting on this one. i want to do some basic straight line quilting on my next quilt. just have to fine a pattern that lends itself to that style…

  52. verobirdie August 7, 2011 at 6:05 am #

    Back and top are perfect match. Love the color, great job

  53. Ashley August 9, 2011 at 3:49 pm #

  56. Kara Goodrum April 17, 2013 at 3:55 am #

    Beautiful! Do you by chance have a pattern or tutorial for this? I looked on your pattern and tutorial pages, but couldn't find anything.

  57. Family Oils May 6, 2015 at 3:14 pm #

    Love this. The colors are great too. I would love to know where to find a tutorial or pattern for this. It is nearly impossible to find a plus sign quilt with the pluses spaced.

  58. Claire September 14, 2015 at 11:36 am #

    I’m also hoping to find a pattern for this quilt. I can’t seem to find where you linked it. I love the offset crosses. Please help!
