Plus Sign Quilt and Group Quilt

Plus sign quilts are great for large prints you want to show off and they are easy to cut and assemble.
This one is a kid’s quilt measuring 45” x 50”.
I backed it with some sale fabric that happened to match the stripes in the elephants’ legs perfectly.
For some added color today – this is a group quilt that my modern quilting group created. Each quarter we do a challenge to create a quilt for donation to the Red Cross. We all made blocks inspired by the QuiltCon 2014 charity quilt colors.
To account for the different size blocks and also to make the quilt bigger (54” x 70”), we added strips of neutrals (white prints, gray print, and the purple solid) around groups of the blocks. It’s so fun to see all the different blocks come together.
