One of my 2018 goals is to keep my entryway decorated with quilted wallhangings. Knowing that the first of the month is always around the corner provides me with a deadline which motivates me to get something created.
For March and April to celebrate Spring and Easter I created a supersized plus quilt measuring 36 x 36 inches. I’m a bit obsessed with plus and cross quilts. I used simple straight line machine quilting with one inch intervals making this easy to make and finish.
The beautiful fabric I used for the plus sign was paper garden digitally printer color collage by Flaurie & Finch for RJR. The colors and flowers remind me of spring; I don’t remember when I purchased it but was happy to find it in my stash. I used Basic Grey’s for Moda Grunge Basics in navy as the background fabric. I found the backing fabric in the clearance section at JoAnn’s – perfect match.
My inspiration for the table runner in the entryway came from Samelia’s Mum: Tulip Time Quilt Pattern. Again I used Grunge basics for each block’s background. I used the last of my Fresh Cut charm pack for the tulips. Both the background and tulip fabrics were designed by Basic Grey for Moda. The runner measures 10 x 44 inches.
Linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday.
Until next time Happy Sewing and Quilting!
