Plus Baby Quilt

The plus quilt design is one of those classics that is really quick and simple to whip up and showcases fabrics you love. You can make the blocks and the finished quilt any size you like. This one is for my besty who is due any day now. She is a lover of all things white and shies away from novelty kids prints. She’s is having a boy so I decided on a muted blue, light grey and white colour scheme. I’ve been stash building in 2011 so I already had all of these fabrics which pleased me no end!

The smaller size meant I was able to machine quilt it myself without the back puckering. I quilted straight lines 1/2″ from each seam using light grey aurufil thread. The binding is Kona Ash. Once completed I gave it the washer and dryer treatment to give it that crinkly feeling.
