Cotton + Steel.  I have all the heart eyes for their stuff!

New Possiblities

The colors are vibrant and the prints are interesting and modern. There is always bound to be an special twist in their lines and I love discovering these little surprises.

Square Stack 1I bought a stack of C+S prints from Spool of Thread in Vancouver and I wanted to make a quilt that was interesting but didn’t involve a lot of cutting and piecing, especially on the bias.  Jeni Baker’s, Arithmetic pattern was just what I was looking for.

I measured, cut and had myself a nice-sized pile of squares.  I have to admit that I had to add a few complementary prints from some non C+S lines.  This is what happens when I make a purchase with no pattern in mind.

Square Stack 2

I laid out the squares into the plus pattern with our resident ‘quality inspector’ close at hand 🙂  After a bit of arranging and re-arranging, I got things to where I was happy and stacked them into rows.

She insisted on getting this laid out juuuust right💗➕➕😀 #quiltelf #celebratehandmade #cottonandsteel #incolororder #plusquilt #makeallthethings #quilt

This week, I was ready to get back to this project and so I began chain piecing the rows.  I really enjoy this part of the process because bit by bit the various pieces are coming together.

Process 1

The simple yet brilliant design is so satisfying. There are so many gorgeous versions of modern plus quilts and variations out there and I haven’t come across a single one that I don’t like.

Process 2

I know that I am going to love this quilt once it is done.  In the meantime, I will enjoy every minute of the process.

    I love all the bright colors! I’m glad you’re enjoying the process of making this so much! It’s a really good feeling when you know you enjoy making it as much as you’ll enjoy using it.

    Gosh, working with all that gorgeous colorful fabric looks just as addicting & fun as knitting with pretty yarn! Love seeing a bit of the process in this post. The placement of the fabrics is fabulous and really highlights the pattern beautifully.
