Yesterday I finished this quilt. It's my version of Jeni Baker's Modern Plus quilt I got from the tutorial I found on her blog, In Color Order. I used a bunch of fat quarters I had to make this. I used Kona solid on the back with a strip of the leftover squares. It sure is cheery and was a lot of fun putting all those plus signs together. The quilting was done using variegated color thread on the top and a green on the back. I like how the curves of the quilting complement the crispness of the squared plus signs. It softens it up a bit, I think.
Here are some close-ups of the quilting. I had it done over at the local quilt shop just to speed things up. I wish I had the time and a longarmer so I could do this myself. Since I don't I do enjoy being able to move on to the next project while the quilters at the shop do their magic.
