It's that time again: Blogger's Quilt Festival! I'm entering my Shattered Plus Quilt into the ROYGBIV category.
My Shattered Plus quilt contains 121 quarter square triangles in 20 different shades of Kona Cotton and arranged in a plus pattern! 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.
And since I never feel like adding labels to my quilts, I have decided that I should just quilt my signature into the quilt. :)
Thank you to Amy of Amy's Creative Side for hosting and organizing this great festival!
