With 121 quarter square triangles and 20 different colors of Kona Cotton arranged in a plus pattern...the Shattered Plus Quilt is finished!
The finished quilt measures 67" square. The backing, which I regret that I did not take a picture of, is white pin dot on black. Nothing fancy, and I have had the polk-a-dot fabric in my stash for a long time. The binding, however, is fancy. I used the left-over fabric from the QSTs to make the binding just as colorful as the quilt top.
I used Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 Cotton Blend Batting for the first time on this quilt. I figured a loftier batting would make the quilting pop more, and it sure did. I also used gold Isacord thread for the all-over free motion swirls. Gold is the new neutral in case you haven't heard. I just made that up.
And since I never feel like adding labels to my quilts, I have decided that I should just quilt my signature into the quilt. :) My last d is a little cut off by binding, but oh well. Are you the quilt police?! At least I signed it, right? And it's better than just signing with permanent fabric marker.
