Fantasia fabric has been cut into charms and sitting my my stash for some time. Since creating this quilt in 2015, I knew I wanted to make a smaller version.
Digging around for scraps before the IMQG retreat this winter, I found the remaining charm squares. They were added to the mountain of stuff I was taking just in case I wanted a simple project. A simple project is a great way to get the creative juices flowing and help you accomplish a bit more.
Saturday night of the retreat I laid the blocks out in about 15 minutes. The top came together in under and hour. A plus quilt is one of my favorite patterns. Mostly because I can use charm squares in something more than just a patchwork top.
Somehow the Kona Mint goes with this color palette. It’s out of my element for sure, but it’s a fun touch. Again I kept the quilting simple.
No crazy machine troubles this time. The backing is pieced with left over bits of the fabric line.
The binding is a Kona solid. Soft green and a bold pink are an interesting combination. The blues are a great accent color.
This quilt is looking for a new home. Are you interested? It’s for sale on my Facebook page for $75 plus shipping. Buying a handmade quilt is a wonderful gift. I add a personalized touch of the babies name if you know it.
You can still find some Fantasia in shops. One of my favorite shops, StitchStashDiva, still has some available here.
This is baby quilt 10/40 toward my 2018 goal.
